Pattis Preschool And Kindergarten

Patti's Preschool is committed to providing individualized care by accepting and building on each child's unique strengths and capabilities.
The program is tailored to meeting the needs of each child, rather than forcing children to adjust to a rigid, confining atmosphere.
Our program includes learning experiences in the areas of language and literature, social relationships, mathematics and science, health and safety, and the creative arts (music, art and movement).
There is a balance between vigorous, stimulating activities and quiet, restful activities.
We have large time blocks for individual activities separated from shorter time periods for group activities, clean-up and meals.
Our spacious, grassy play area encourages the children to run and play games with their friends.
Our students have the opportunity to develop their large motor skills with wheel toys and climbing equipment.
Simple principles of science and math, as well as an appreciation of nature, are instilled through our gardening program.

School Notes

  • Patti's Preschool believes that the development of a child's potential is based on a warm, loving environment and a genuine concern for the emerging personality. Children who can choose from a wide variety of experiences with some guidance and encouragement from their teachers will thrive in this type of environment. Sensory and perceptual abilities, language development, abstract thinking and problem solving are emphasized in the school's program. These important skills enable children to develop into well-rounded individuals. The school's philosophy also encompasses the importance of helping children develop respect and compassion for others. By encouraging and reinforcing positive behavior, setting definite, appropriate boundaries, and providing opportunities to cooperate and verbally solve interpersonal problems, Patti's Preschool believes children will develop essential social skills that will last a lifetime. The school's staff is dedicated to modeling courtesy, kindness, and empathy as well as encouraging important moral values.
