Membership in a parent participation nursery school is a family experience. Children, parents and teachers have the opportunity to grow both socially and emotionally. We gain skills and knowledge by observing and participating with one another.
For our children – an opportunity:
To be themselves and develop at their own rate.
To express themselves through art and play materials freely and constructively.
To learn to be tolerant, creative, cooperative and imaginative.
To learn to be independent…able to solve their own problems and do things for themselves.
To enjoy a preschool experience that will simplify adjustment to elementary school and other social situations.
To learn to establish close relationships with adults other than their family.
To learn limits of behavior regarding safety, health, and respect for the rights of others.
To build feelings of self-confidence and security and an acceptance of reality.
To extend and enrich their understanding of the world.
To increase their ability to handle their emotions constructively.
For ourselves – an opportunity:
To share our child’s first experience away from home.
To become more aware of the child’s world and understand his/her behavior based on knowledge of growth and development.
To achieve a more positive approach to our child-adult relationship through professional guidance and shared experience with other parents.
To provide techniques of working with children and insight into human relationships, through participation in the parent education program.
To increase our understanding of the needs of the other adults and the needs of the group.
To appreciate and accept one another for who we are.
