Our Kindergarten Philosophy
Our philosophy of education recognizes that working with young children requires an approach unique to their age. Here is our philosophy statement:
Kindergarten is the start of an exciting learning journey. The kindergarten classroom offers a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment for all children and their families. The partnership between families and school is critical to a child’s success. We consider parents/guardians to be part of the classroom community, and we invite them to share in their child’s schooling.
Kindergarten teachers promote self-discovery and self-awareness in all areas of development – social, emotional, physical, and cognitive – to meet the needs of each individual child. Children are active learners. They learn best when allowed multiple opportunities to play, create, investigate, explore, predict, and learn from one another and their environment.
Each child brings educational and cultural background experiences to kindergarten. We believe that this background must be valued, listened to, and used to empower the child to be successful in school. The kindergarten curriculum provides children with a variety of opportunities to try out new ideas and be challenged with new experiences that engage budding readers, writers, scientists, mathematicians, and artists. We want our students to be confident, love learning, and be successful in a classroom community.
You, the parent, will always be the most important person in your child’s education. We welcome your support.
