Philosophy

The philosophy of the Endicott Preschool program is that each child learns through guided exploration of their world with support of the teacher and family. Preschool children learn through active and purposeful play. Through this guided play, the child develops creativity, language skills, social skills, motor skills and self confidence.

In order to get children ready for school, we set goals:

To provide a curriculum that builds upon what children already know and are able to do to enable them to connect to new concepts and skills
To provide a literacy-rich environment through the use of centers for reading, science, math and dramatic play
To provide units with themes that integrate and teach across all content areas (English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and the Arts)
To provide children with exposure to a wide variety of information and literacy experiences including the use of technology in the daily activities
To provide a safe environment for students and staff
To provide a learning climate in each classroom that is active; one in which children interact with each other and manipulatives while engaging in cooperative hands-on learning with day-to-day life experiences
To provide a balance of classroom activities that is teacher-directed and child-initiated; these activities may be active or quiet, performed individually or in large or small groups
To provide an environment that is sensitive to cultural, language and learning differences among all children and families served
To provide a curriculum that promotes the students’ growth in creative development, motor development, cognitive development, and their social and emotional development
To provide an on-going process of collecting information from multiple sources about a child’s needs, which include observation, portfolios, screening and development checklists. This data is used to determine each child’s individual strengths and weaknesses. This information is used to plan and adapt the child’s program. Assessment information is also shared with parents in a timely and ongoing manner
