Our Mission

It is Laurelwood Community Preschool's mission to advocate for the young child and to promote the potential of the children within our care by the following means:

  • Providing a developmentally appropriate environment that supports social, emotional, cognitive, physical and language development while responding to the needs of their families.
  • Establishing a school community where children, parents, extended families, teachers and the community are active participants in helping the children grow confidently.
  • Cultivating creativity and critical thinking skills with a focus on the expressive arts, natural sciences and an emergent, inquiry-based project approach to education. It is far more important for children to learn how to think than to be told what to think.
