Our philosophy is based on the idea of a child-centered curriculum that respects the uniqueness of young children. We seek to offer many varied opportunities for learning through active play and social interaction in a safe and loving environment. We provide a variety of developmentally appropriate materials, activities, and experiences that encourage a balance of academic and social growth. Our goal is to foster a strong sense of self-worth that will help lay the foundation for future years of learning.
We offer an outstanding early childhood program. We provide children with experiences and opportunities that encourage them to reach their full potential. Our small classes furnish many opportunities for one-on-one attention while providing the perfect atmosphere for group activities. We are committed to providing a supportive, nurturing environment where children can learn and grow.
Union Hill Church Preschool offers classes for children between the ages of 2 ½ and 6 years. Most classes are three hours in length. We offer a choice of one or two day classes for our twos. Three year olds may attend two or three day classes. Pre-K fours may choose from three or four days. Enrichment classes are available to choose from on a weekly basis.
Fully qualified teachers and classroom aides staff our classes. They are committed to the use of positive reinforcement, redirection, and communication to maintain a safe and child-centered environment. The staff is dedicated to a hands-on approach to learning which allows children to discover and explore the world around them.
It is our belief that discipline should be based on respect for children. It is our intention to help children learns self-discipline and to foster self-esteem.We do not use time out in our program. We use the opportunity to develop conflict resolution skills through communication.
