The philosophy of the Preschool Department is based on the following beliefs and principles:
- The child has a natural curiosity that, in an appropriate environment, results in an eagerness to learn. Providing opportunities that stimulate this curiosity is important.
- Play is essential to children’s learning.
Preschool students are exposed to a variety of learning centers that change according to themes taught or learning experiences. Children are guided into moving from one center to another to explore and learn while acquiring skills and concepts independently. Since children learn best through the use of their five senses, projects, activities, and lessons are given through a hands-on approach, providing developmentally appropriate experiences.
