Educational Philosophy of First Parish Preschool
First Parish Preschool provides an early childhood program that is welcoming and supportive of children, parents, and caregivers. Our preschool creates an active, hands- on learning atmosphere in which children help to drive the curriculum to form a sense of excitement about learning and discovery. Curriculum is based on a child’s individual interest, style of learning, and stage of development in alliance with Massachusetts Early Preschool Standards, Creative Curriculum, and National Association for the Education of Young Children Accreditation Standards. First Parish Preschool is concerned with the total child in supporting their development of physical, cognitive, social, and emotional needs while working together with parents and caregivers.
The staff of First Parish Preschool believes in their own continuing education in the field of early childhood in order to offer the most developmentally appropriate program for children and to advocate on behalf of children and their families.
