Philosophy

It is the philosophy of AGWSR’s early childhood program including preschool, pre-kindergarten (pre-k), and early childhood special education (ECSE) that children 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 preschool programs provide inclusive settings that recognize children’s varied 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, and language experiences 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.

 

We recognize that parents are the child’s first teachers. Children learn best when parents are involved in their educational program. The primary bridge between home and school is the involvement of family and community.
