Our mission as educators is to provide each child a secure, caring and stimulating environment in which to grow emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. We believe that by self-discovery and exploration, a child’s self-worth will be affirmed.
We understand that each child is a unique individual and by fostering that individuality through differential curriculum, we provide each child the opportunity to grow and learn.
Our daily programs provide structured and unstructured exploration using children’s literature, science, math, dramatic play and movement, art, music, cooking, outdoor play and games all appropriate to the child’s development level.
Developmental assessments are an important process which allows us to understand a child’s competency and to design a learning environment which helps them grow to their developmental potential. At Owl’s Crossing Preschool, all children’s work is routinely assessed through an ongoing process which includes classroom observation, documentation, work sampling and skills checklists. We base our assessments on national standards and knowledge of child development and expectations for each age group. Additionally we are in communication with the Scituate Public Schools Kindergarten teachers to understand expectations when entering Kindergarten.
