Grade Message:

Summit Preschool Program Philosophy

Vision: We grow passionate and compassionate thinkers and doers.

We believe that:

  • All children learn at their level
  • Families are a critical component of the learning process
  • Preschool is the 1st impression of the educational system for most families. We are setting the tone for education.
  • Preschool prepares for life
  • Early Childhood makes a large impact
  • Preschool develops a sense of school community and beyond
  • Whole child emphasis
  • Focus on the child

Each child will:

  • Develop learning behavior
  • Self regulation
  • Independence
  • Acceptance
  • Perseverance
  • Intrinsic Motivation Centered

WE RECOGNIZE the importance of play as the basis of all learning experiences for young children.

WE RECOGNIZE the philosophy of “active learning”: Children learn by manipulating objects, exploring with all of their senses, and interacting with people and materials.

WE BELIEVE in providing a positive learning environment where children are encouraged to actively engage in all aspects of play. They have the opportunity to learn and discover skills necessary for social interaction as well as developing positive self-esteem.

WE STRIVE to meet the needs of individual children with concern for their interests, abilities, special talents, and developmental levels.

WE ENCOURAGE each child’s creativity, curiosity, initiative, reasoning, and problem-solving abilities.

WE SUPPORT each child’s ability to use language effectively to meet their needs and communicate with others. We also promote independence by concentrating on self-help skills.

WE ESTABLISH realistic goals and expectations for each child’s developmental abilities, which will help them be successful. Our child-based curriculum will encourage a love for learning that will last a lifetime!
