Preschool Program Philosophy
The first years of a child’s life set the foundation for and influence future success in school and life. The Cloverleaf Preschool Program adheres to the Ohio Administrative Code Chapter dealing with the Rules for Preschool Programs, and provides a comprehensive preschool education with a variety of experiences and materials to enhance physical, social, emotional and cognitive growth.
Children’s learning occurs in a widely diverse and interactive way. An activity that stimulates one area of development affects all other areas as well. It is important to provide a proper introduction in classroom learning so that all children feel confident about themselves and their ability to succeed. It is also important to have a balance between free choice and structured activities to foster responsibility, self-discipline and confidence. Through continuous observation and assessment of each student, the teacher recognizes individual interests and can help each child purse his or her personal goals and satisfy his or her own needs.
