Early Childhood Philosophy
Phone: 720-972-8762 - Contact Preschool
The instructional approach in the early childhood education program focuses on the child as an active learner, and adults as the facilitators of experiences. Young children learn best through play-based activities that allow them to engage, experiment and explore. Adults help children focus their play, asking key questions and offering ideas to extend play themes, creating learning opportunities for maximum benefit. Our staff are informed by the needs and interests of the children through ongoing assessment of development and learning.
