To provide an exceptional, full day Pre-K Program, because our mission is to take advantage of the teachable moments that happen every day by fostering the intellectual, creative, social, emotional, and physical growth and development of our Pre-K students and to inspire a lifelong commitment to learning. We are a strategically focused Early Literacy Program, our caring, cooperative school environment promotes cultural values and supports positive relationships and respectful interaction. We will provide an environment that allows children to learn by doing – moving from concrete, hands-on experiences to more abstract concept development. Our priority is to provide a healthy balance of child-directed and teacher-guided activities, as well as time for children to work individually, in small groups and in large groups. We believe that a stable, safe, healthy, comfortable, and culturally relevant environment is crucial to a child’s growth. An academically focused program and teachers who have standards based knowledge allows our teachers to ensure a consistent, engaging and effective daily instruction. We also offer time for play-based approach which provides a child-centered curriculum directed by teachers in which children are encouraged to construct their own knowledge. We believe that our program reflects the needs and goals of children and families. We look forward to working closely with our students and their families which will provide an integrated, comprehensive approach to learning as they grow, mature and prepare for Kindergarten in Polk County Schools.
