Our Philosophy at Monticello UMC Weekday Preschool
Our goal here at Monticello UMC Weekday School is to provide all of the children in our care a clean, safe, comfortable, loving environment where they can play and learn. We believe in respect toward self and others and want the children to feel safe, supported and happy.
All children are encouraged to think for themselves so they are more likely to act independently. Children learn from everything that happens to them so all aspects of a child's development are equally important and interwoven. Learning should be meaningful and fun so the children should be actively involved through hands-on experiences where the process of learning is more important than the end product. Because all children are at different levels in their learning and develop at different rates, we celebrate what the children can do and use that as a starting point in their learning.
At Monticello Weekday School, we also believe that leading children to knowledge and love of God and Jesus Christ is also an important aspect of growth. Bible stories and songs will be incorporated into our daily curriculum so the children will begin building a sturdy base upon which to develop a strong spiritual life. Using developmentally appropriate experiences that will help meet the individual needs and abilities of a child's mental, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development are important at our Weekday School.
