Small Wonder’s philosophy for preschool education is based several components. First, we believe that children learn through play. This is the foundation of our program. Our learning enviroment is organized in a way that allows for play through many different learning centers. Our learning centers are designed for play situations that initiate creative thinking. Everything is placed in our learning centers with a strategic purpose. Second, we realize that each and every child learns differently. Some children learn through music, some learn through tactile experimentation, some learn well in small groups, some prefer large groups. Children cannot be told how to learn, rather, they tell us how they learn best and we support their learning through observation and then by creating lessons and activities that scaffold what children already know to new experiences and idealy new concepts and understanding. Third, we realize that education begins at home with family and friends. Parents are a child’s first teacher. Through our website, monthly newsletters, conferences, and informal interactions with parents we hope to give parents support and ideas so that they can build on what we are learning in the classroom at home.
