The goals of Round Valley Primary Schools early education program are to provide:
1. A child-centered environment that encourages competence and self-esteem.
2. A positive, non-competitive, non-sexist atmosphere that fosters an acceptance of the uniqueness of self and others.
3. A physical setting that allows a child to safely explore self- selected activities.
4. A learning setting in which teaching means facilitation of a childs intellectual growth through guided discovery in a prepared environment.
5. An experiential, hands-on curriculum flexible enough to meet individual and group needs.
6. Developmentally sequenced activities that not only contribute to a childs total progress, but are also enjoyable and meaningful.
7. Effective communication skills (oral, written, listening, reading) that are interwoven into the childs daily experience.
8. Opportunities for family involvement that strengthen the educational program, enhance the childs experiences, and lay a foundation for the future of the home-school partnership.
9. A more adequate assessment of each childs ongoing educational and developmental needs in terms of physical, emotional, social, and intellectual growth.

We at Round Valley Primary School recognize that young children learn best through active involvement with their environment. This involvement provides for the growth and development of the whole child, physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually. To nurture this development in a relaxed setting requires time.
We believe a developmentally appropriate program will provide children more time and opportunity:
1. To feel good about themselves as capable, unique individuals.
2. To engage in playful work.
3. To grow in decision making, problem solving, and creative thinking.
4. To express themselves through language, writing, movement, and use of materials and resources.
5. To interact in guided and informal play experiences.
6. To develop self-motivation, self-discipline, and self-direction toward purposeful activities.
7. To explore their environment using their five senses.
8. To foster a curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.
9. To enjoy age-appropriate activities for their own sake, not only as a preparation for the future.
10. To work together with the home, and the community to provide for the total education of the students, remembering that learning is a shared experience among the students, school personnel, family members and the community.
