Preschool Peas Program 


Within our school, we strive to create a safe and nurturing place where each person (adult and child) is treated fairly and with respect. Our primary goal is for each child to have a positive early education experience in which she/he/they may gain the skills and confidence necessary to build friendships, work autonomously and collaboratively, and feel a sense of belonging. The emphasis is not on “school academics readiness,” but rather on fostering children’s social-emotional development, enabling them to learn to trust themselves, and helping them navigate healthy conflict resolution skills amongst their peers, a skill that will set them up for academic success. Parental support and engagement are important aspects of our preschool.
