MHCEC Preschool

Mile Hi Children's Enrichment Center (MHCEC) Preschool

Statement of Vision
We envision generations partnering in the care and recognition of children as innate learners seeking to unfold, guide, and cultivate their own knowledge through play and relationships that are deeply supportive and congruent with the true needs of both child and family.

Statement of Mission
We are committed to enriching the early childhood journey with wonder, respect, support, research, and guidance. We look at the learning environment holistically and co-create curricula with our children and families that reflect their uniqueness and community. We intricately document every child’s Learning Story as an act of love and involve them in every learning process and reflection. We celebrate and study play as the child’s primary language and seek to support each family, individually, and our greater community, collectively.

MHCEC Director
April Reeves, M.Ed.

We are driven by children’s innate ability to learn anything they choose, whether it is about themselves, their community, or our world. We want to celebrate it, enrich it, and witness it.

We root in a human curriculum that focuses on the child’s developmental range of self and community—who am I, and who am I in relationship to community?

Foundationally, we foster a human curriculum of how to care for ourselves, help take care of others, and understand our feelings and emotions and those of others while developing an understanding and relationship with the Earth. From a human curriculum, our early childhood teachers facilitate emergent learning through documentation, research, reflection, and planning.

Each child belongs to all of us, and they will bring us a tomorrow in direct relation to the responsibility we have shown them.
–Maya Angelou


At MHCEC, we believe our greatest strength lies in the talents and skills of our staff. Our teachers are highly educated, deeply caring professionals who are dedicated to respectful, quality education for young children. As the school’s most valuable asset, our staff is supported in their continuing education to stay up to date with the latest in Montessori/Reggio Emilia curriculum and early childhood education research and techniques. All faculty members have extensive background checks, CPR and first aid certifications, and Universal Precautions training.

My favorite thing about school is...I think all of the things are my favorite. We sing. We play. I have eighty sixty friends. We see nature.
