Grades: NS - K | 135 students
At Suburban Hills, we believe in the concept that happy well-adjusted children, given the respect and attention they deserve, possess self-confidence, initiative, perseverance, and the ability to work and solve problems in conjunction with their peers.
Our building was designed exclusively for early childhood.
Our goal is to provide a "total" environment where the children feel at home and are stimulated to learn through discovery and can develop to the full extent of their potential: intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially.
The teachers at Suburban Hills, experienced early childhood specialists, are our most valuable resource.
Many are also trained in C.P.R.
and First Aid.
They are primarily concerned with your child's needs and the classrooms are arranged and equipped to meet those needs.
With guidance, the teachers encourage the children to progress and grow at their own rate of development.
As the children participate in both structured and free-play activities, there is continual observation of their present skills, their readiness for new skills and their special learning requirements.
The teachers complete progress reports for each child, assessing academic, physical and social skills.
Included are: listening skills, language development, creativity, large and small muscle development, mathematical concepts, logic, movement and social aptitude.
