Welcome to the 2014-2015
SPCC is a developmental pre-school. It is our belief that children grow and learn when they are free to observe, explore and actively engage in activities at their own developmental levels and pace. We recognize that children learn through play. Our program provides a warm nurturing environment in which children can thrive. Each child is treated as an individual, respecting their needs, learning styles, and personalities. Our child-oriented environment addresses the intellectual, emotional, social, and physical needs of young children. We encourgage children's natural curiosity and foster a healthy respect for themselves, for others, and for their surroundings. The teaching staff carefully plans for a variety of activities and learning experiences that reflect children's particular interests and needs.
We encourage a close relationship between parents and staff and have an open door policy. Parents are welcome to visit and participate both informally and on special occasions. We encourage a close relationship between parents and teachers. We look forward to working together with parents to provide the best preschool experience for their children.
We offer young children a hands-on learning experience to stimulate creativity, learn cooperation, and develop new skills. Our thematic curriculum units center around students' needs and include discovery in art, music, drama, and literature. In addition, age appropriate readiness activities in reading, math, and science are offered. A combination of free-play time and group activities and discucssions allow the children to practice the social readiness skills necessary to begin Kindergarden with a positive self-image. Our free-play time allows children the opportunity to explore various learning centers including - art, drawing, writing, literature, fine motor skills, blocks, dramatic play, and sensory play. Our group activities include experiences in discussions, problem solving, music, literature, drama, and gross motor games. Outdoor play is offered daily, weather permitting. Snack is provided daily by the school.
Our curricullum incorporates an interfaith perspective to encourage mutual respect and appreciation for the various beliefs and customs in today's multicultural society. The overall program supports positive moral development and acknowledges the role of God in the children's lives. Children learn to treat others as they would like to be treated, learn the value of every living thing as a creation of God, and have the opportunity for the expression of gratitude for the world and their lives through prayer before snack time.
