Mile Hi Children's Enrichment Center
We must become as little children. How we long for a return of that simple trust in life which children have: in their minds there are no doubts...The life of the child is natural goodness.
Mile Hi Children’s Enrichment Center (MHCEC) is a Licensed preschool serving children ages 2 – 5. Our education and curriculum foundation is inspired by the Reggio Emilia and Montessori philosophies.
These philosophies honor the unique development of each child and support a whole child approach to learning. Relevant hands-on learning opportunities are provided to allow the children to explore and discover in rich, stimulating environments. The teacher serves as a guide in the classroom as well as a partner to the child as they explore learning together. The teacher creates and provides curriculum in response to observing and listening to the child’s interests, passions, and developmental readiness. MHCEC honors the child’s sense of wonder of the world around them and provides rich opportunities to ignite the child’s natural love of learning.
Our rich curriculum develops core skills in science, math, language, handwriting, art and music. We value health and wellness and offer learning activities that inform the children about nutrition and physical fitness. We have created an “outdoor classroom” which includes numerous discovery areas, climbing surfaces, and a wide variety of plants, bushes, and trees allowing children to explore, play and imagine.
MHCEC also features Love and Logic ©, a philosophy that supports teachers in the classroom with management techniques that promote self control, decision making, and responsibility. We believe that by contributing to their personal growth through Love and Logic © teachings, children develop self-respect, self-esteem, and the ability to make positive choices. The MHCEC will focus on the child’s inner strengths and help to educate them in physical, emotional, and social aspects of their lives.
