Purpose & Philosophy
The purpose of Harrison Preschool is to provide a nurturing, Christian environment where children may grow, learn, and develop. The preschool adopts the philosophy that all areas of development are equally important and should receive equal emphasis. We strive to provide a variety of opportunities for children to grow spiritually, socially, physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively.
The preschool is a play based school. We know that children learn best through play, and our role is to set-up a variety of play experiences in which we can encourage children to become involved. We utilize The Creative Curriculum to achieve this objective.
The Creative Curriculum focuses on the environment through hands-on exploration and discovery that helps build lifelong critical thinking skills and fosters confidence. It also provides teachers with the content and tools needed to encourage and support every type of learner.
As the children move into the 4 year old program an additional curriculum is introduced to promote Kindergarten readiness. Handwriting Without Tears is a playful approach to writing. It uses music, movement, and multi-sensory manipulatives to teach all the core readiness skills including crayon grip, and letter and number recognition.
We believe that it is important for children to learn and grow in a Christian environment. In each class we teach Bible stories, verses and songs. Also, our 3 and 4 year olds go to chapel once a week to hear the Word.
