At Little Peeps Preschool, our philosophy is to offer an environment where children can learn skills that will lead to a successful transition into Kindergarten. Children will learn in a fun and loving way through exploring and hands on experiences using both structured and unstructured activities.
Balance is the key to a successful learning experience. Children need to be challenged to encourage their mental and physical growth. They need to be seen as individuals, given respect, and freedom with boundaries.
Education comes together through the collaboration of the teacher, student and family. We all play a role in creating a foundation for the children socially, emotionally, physically, and academically so they can grow and succeed at their full potential.
