Preschool Mission Statement
The mission of the Nevada Community Preschool is to provide a quality preschool experience in a positive, developmentally appropriate environment. There is an emphasis on the development of the whole child – language, cognitive, social-emotional, and physical. Children are encouraged to learn through active play and hands-on activities. The intent is to prepare our 4 year olds for kindergarten, yet our preschool is not to be like kindergarten. Any significant delays in development are identified and addressed. Each day will provide a variety of cognitive/pre-academic skills, social experiences, cooperative play, large and small motor activities, and direction in self-help skills. Students will learn to acknowledge and follow classroom rules. Most of all students will have fun!
Preschool Philosophy Statement
Our program is child-centered, and learning is accomplished through developmentally appropriate active play, hands-on experiences, and teacher and child directed activities. The program believes in early intervention, and procedures are in place for providing services to meet special needs of individual children. Children respond best to positive guidance and reinforcement, and need to feel safe and valued. It is our philosophy that children are naturally curious, and providing them with a variety of engaging learning opportunities will foster a love of learning. We believe that a quality preschool program will be best accomplished through establishing strong partnerships with parents and community members.
