Kinderhaven Philosophy

Our philosophy and goals are best represented in our core values. These core values serve as the foundation for our preschool and include the following:

  • Children have experiences that encourage healthy social-emotional development and positive self-concept.
  • Children will develop a positive character, understanding the importance of compassion and respect for others throughout all aspects of their daily activities.
  • Learning experiences are holistic (involving the whole child) and nurturing, challenging and encouraging children to grow in every aspect of their lives.
  • Children are provided with opportunities to develop fundamental skills that serve as a foundation for future school success, and enhance their desire to learn.
  • Parents are viewed as vital to their child’s development and partners in their child’s education.
  • Documentation is an integral part of the teaching and learning process.

The above core values are seen in every aspect of our Kinderhaven classes and are fostered at each child’s developmental level with just enough challenge for him/her to succeed and grow intellectually, skillfully and socially. We also offer Enrichment Classes that are designed to promote specialized skills and concepts in those respective areas.
