The Philosophy

We have noted that preschool and kindergarten-aged children have a wonderful way of interacting with the world around them. They regard it with curiosity, awe, and a desire to learn. Both theory and research in the discipline of developmental psychology recognizes that the under-age-8 child is quite different from the over-age-8 child. In order to meet the unique learning needs of the younger child, it would not be appropriate to use the same educational methods that match the learning needs of older children.
 
Young children construct ideas as they have experiences with objects and people. In short, they need many opportunities for hands-on experiences that allow them to touch, taste, think, talk, look, listen, and interact. Young children benefit from a curriculum in which they take an active part and have many experiences for discoveries daily.
 
The philosophical foundation for the program is based on the accreditation standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children and the criteria set forth in Developmentally Appropriate Practice in early Childhood Programs (NAEYC, 2009).
