Mile Hi Children's Enrichment Center Preschool

Our philosophy is simple: Honor the unique development of each child and apply the whole-child approach to learning.

The whole-child approach nurtures all areas of children’s development from social-emotional-cognitive skills, literacy, math, science, art, music, nutrition, and fitness. This type of teaching is a powerful strategy as preschool children transition to kindergarten.

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

Our education and curriculum foundation is inspired by the Reggio Emilia and Montessori philosophies. Children are given relevant hands-on learning opportunities that allow them to explore, discover, and ignite their natural love of learning in rich, stimulating environments. Our teachers create curriculums based on observations of each child’s interests, passions, and developmental readiness.

We also incorporate Love and Logic©, a philosophy that supports our teachers with management techniques that promote children’s self-control, decision making, and responsibility. By contributing to their personal growth through these teachings, children develop self-respect, self-esteem, and the ability to make positive choices.
