Mission and Guiding Principles

    Our program at Creative Minds Preschool is based on the philosophy that all children are exceptional and unique individuals. We understand these are the most important years in a child’s development. We believe that children learn best through active participation with their environment and with other people. Therefore, we support a hands-on approach to learning for all ages. Teachers act as facilitators by providing a variety of opportunities and experiences to promote learning and growth in all areas; language, cognitive, emotional, social and physical development.

    At Creative Minds Preschool, we recognize the importance of the child’s family and encourage their participation in decisions about their own child’s care, education and on the overall program. We respect and support each family and their diverse backgrounds, beliefs and input. We believe it is important for parents and teachers to communicate and we invite all parents to stop in anytime to see their child. We encourage parent involvement in the classroom and program planning.
