|At Rockwood Preschool, the child is the center of the teaching and learning process. Guided by the most recent research about how and what young children learn best, we have developed the following philosophy:
Children learn best through active, meaningful and hands-on experience. Our teachers, educated in child development, and familiar with effective teaching strategies, encourage children to participate in a variety of challenging classroom experiences. They strive to engage children in interesting age-appropriate activities, both individually, and in small and large groups.
All children have strengths and can contribute to their community. Rockwood Preschool is committed to providing children with a sense of belonging. Our preschool is an inclusive environment for learning. Children of all backgrounds and abilities are valued and appreciated for the strengths and gifts they bring to the classroom and each other in learning.
Families play a vital role in their child's education. Rockwood Preschool provides a variety of opportunities to work together with families and to involve them meaningfully in their child's learning.
Rockwood Preschool sets the stage for a child's success in Rockwood School District. Rockwood Preschool is committed to preparing children for kindergarten in an environment that strengthens their enthusiasm for learning.
