Our Core Values . . . the Heart of Our Distinction
Each day, we ask open-ended questions of children to challenge them to think. When children answer, we listen. Here, children learn that their thoughts are important and that all answers are not necessarily right or wrong. We help children to develop confidence to speak before a circle of friends by reinforcing that each contribution is important and worthy of respect.
Creativity. Self-Esteem. Socialization
We realize how critical preschool years are to developing skills that enhance scholastic readiness. In age-appropriate classroom settings, Graham Memorial Preschool provides enrichment activities designed to promote creativity, self-esteem, and socialization. And, we work hand-in-hand with preschool families, to respect and support the values that they hold to be important.
We group children according to developmental age and level because the needs and abilities of two-year-olds differ from those of three- and four-year-olds.
We treat children respectfully and encourage them to mirror the same respect for other people and property. We help children to understand that displaying respectful behavior is the best insurance for receiving respect in return.
