OUR PHILOSOPHY AT PRE-K IN THE PARK
We believes that learning is simple. It takes a little excitement, a bit of listening skills, and the space to take it in and process. At our pre-school we create an environment where children are encouraged to learn through doing through play, daily life tasks, nature exploration, crafting art and through experiences in our community on our visits out into the world together as a group. We go on field trips weekly.
Our environment is rich with opportunities to ask questions, explore and discover. We have time to learn and live into our life in pre-K. Our rhythm is designed by childhood itself, exactly what a pre-school child needs.
Our curriculum was designed by our founder Heather Stewart. The curriculum is influenced by many wonderful leaders in the field of education.

This will share a little more detail with you about the foundations of our curriculum.
2021-2022: Due to the Covid pandemic We have a strict no field trips policy, however we do visit the Park and outdoor spaces that are safe with appropriate safety precautions always taken. Field trips will resume in time.
