Welcome to Little Giants Preschool!

Our Mission: "Collaborate to Educate"

Belief Statements:

  • Play is the way children learn naturally. It helps them to develop in all areas.
  • An appropriate early childhood learning environment is safe and includes many hands-on experiences that invite children to investigate, learn, and share.
  • Teachers must use a wide range of teaching strategies, including both child-initiated learning and teacher-directed activities.
  • All children, including those with special needs and second language learners, can benefit from a developmentally appropriate preschool program.
  • When families are an integral part of a school program, children's self esteem and achievement are enhanced.
  • Social/emotional readiness is critical to children's success in school and in life and should therefore, be a main focus of the preschool program.
  • A print-rich environment that allows children to practice literacy skills in real-life experiences, along with purposeful teaching of key concepts, is the foundation of literacy learning in preschool.
