It is the philosophy of the First Foundation Pre-School program that children should be encouraged to learn and grow by providing a foundation of developmentally appropriate experiences where all children can succeed in a safe and nurturing environment.
We believe that each child is a unique individual and that all children can learn. Our pre-school program provides inclusive settings that recognize children's various abilities, interests, needs, and learning styles.
We believe children learn best through meaningful play. Our play-based, child centered program, reflects the integration of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, language, self-help, and aesthetic areas for the total development of the child.
Meaningful play encourages curiosity, discovery, and problem solving which allows individual growth and development of a positive self-image.
The goal of the staff is to build an adequate foundation for the child's public school years. The program we pursue is geared toward helping children develop habits of observation, questioning, and listening. We want to ease the transition from home to school. This will be helping them to learn how to get along with other children and adults, to develop skills through active games, and encourage emotional growth through group activities. We want you, as a parent, to see your child at work and play in our busy, happy, noisy, and creative classrooms. We want you to realize the validity of that play and the importance of what is being learned.
Parents and teachers together can help the children to develop their full potential. We feel that there is great benefit of providing pre-school education.
