Our Program Philosophy
The Children’s Museum Preschool is a play-based program that encourages and develops learning through each child’s natural activities. Experts agree that by learning through play, children find education to be a positive and joyous experience. Our focus on this philosophy is the core of our curriculum.
We know that all children are different, and each child comes to us with different strengths and areas of growth. Using proven techniques, we tailor our classes to be sensitive to the needs of each individual child while maintaining an affirming and inclusive environment for all.
A typical school day includes activities and experiential learning that enhance social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth. Each week, on a rotating basis, our children experience developmentally appropriate planetarium shows and science classes taught by museum educators, as well as animal demonstrations with our Wildlife Sanctuary staff. Children in the preschool often explore the museum with their teachers as guides.
Our professional educators all have degrees as well as real experience in the education field. By encouraging children to explore, imagine and create, they in turn enhance and develop each child’s critical thinking skills, creativity and ability to express themselves. We structure our classes and activities to facilitate the growth of important social skills such as sharing, taking turns and respecting the rights of others.
As children progress through our program, they learn the skills that give them a wonderful start in the lifelong journey of learning. We are looking forward to adding your family to our family, here at The Children’s Museum Preschool.
The Preschool provides flexible schedules to fit your needs and those of your child.
