Every child is unique and we believe that success and growth come from encouragement and praise. Our teachers focus on building every child’s self esteem and confidence through positive feedback and rewards. We nurture their natural strengths. A child see’s the world around them with wonder and awe, we believe in encouraging their natural curiosity.
My Own School is a non profit developmental play based preschool. The prominent idea is that children at the preschool age learn best through play.
The director and parent -teachers seek to provide a classroom with a wide variety of learning experiences and creative opportunities that will expand the childs ability to play, think, listen, create, wonder, imagine, initiate activities, negotiate a...nd communicate. The curriculum takes into account the development stages of the children. Activities, materials, equipment and expectations are developmentally appropriate for 3 to 5 year olds.
Social interaction is a very important part of the preschool years and our program. The teacher takes every chance to provide opportunities for each child to experience justice, fair play, concern for the rights and feeling of others, natural consequences of their actions, and steps toward the child's understanding of their relationships with peers and adults.
We are a cooperative and, as the name implies, we all share a responsibility for our accomplishments and failures. We hope that through our interactions with each other and our children that we are able to grow as parents and to work to help each other as we work toward the goals we set for our children and ourselves.
