St. Joan Of Arc Preschool
- The staff and parents at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Preschool is dedicated to providing a Christ-centered foundation of life-long learners in a safe, healthy, nurturing environment.
- St. Joan of Arc Preschool’s philosophy is based on the Reggio Emilia approach to education.
- We believe all children to be capable competent active participants with equal rights, and are co-constructors of their own knowledge.
- They deserve authentic open ended, God created natural materials that provoke meaningful interactions, creativity, and learning.
- These positive early learning experiences translate into future school and personal success.
- School success is heavily dependent on the child’s self-esteem and positive attitude toward the learning process.
- Young children learn best by doing. Young learners require active thinking and experimenting to understand how things work and to learn firsthand about the world in which they live.
- Play provides this foundation for learning. Play is the work of the young child.
- St. Joan of Arc Preschool believes that the acquisition of Catholic Christian values leads to a more spiritually balanced human being.
- It is these values that will guide a child throughout his/her whole life.
- This Preschool strives to not only instill a lifetime love of learning, but a love of the Lord as well.
