Philosophy

Our unique, inclusive play-based program focuses mainly on the development of our students. This builds confidence, creativity, and a love for school while kids learn in an age-appropriate approach. 

In play-based schools, different stations are set up around the classroom, such as a reading corner, a dramatic play area and a puzzle table. Teachers facilitate learning while children play and explore.

Foothill Preschool places a strong emphasis on fostering social skills and getting along with others by sharing, taking turns and resolving conflicts with words instead of crying or hitting. Teachers nurture these skills by helping kids negotiate who gets to play with a toy or which role each child gets to assume in make-believe play.

We believe that each child is a unique individual and that all children can learn. Our preschool provides an inclusive setting 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, language, self-help and aesthetic areas 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.
