Child playing

Program Goals

Based upon the theories and principles of Erikson and Piaget, six goals have been established. Activities for all children are directed toward meeting these goals:

  1. To provide children with opportunities for social interaction with same age peers.
  2. To assure that children have a good start in the development of a positive self-concept.
  3. To assist children in the formation of positive attitudes toward school and learning.
  4. To provide the children with a wide variety of activities and experiences which will build the firm foundations for later academic learning.
    • Conceptual development
    • Language development
    • Listening and following directions
    • Thinking and decision making
    • Independence and responsibility
  5. To provide children with opportunities to practice large and small motor skills.
  6. To encourage development of creativity
