SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY

SMARTY PANTS is a small, intimate setting where children learn at their own pace in multi-age classroom. It is located in a beautiful, country setting.  Smarty Pants offers an extended day preschool program (9am-3pm) for ages 2-5 years old.  We use a hands-on, multi-sensory, integrated approach in which the children learn through discovery and exploration of the world around them. Our curriculum is child-centered, multi-age teaching, designed to work with each individual=s natural developmental growth.  Children are provided with opportunities to interact with their peers in a developmentally appropriate environment welcoming of children of all abilities that offers a balance of child initiated and teacher directed activities reflecting the interests of the children, their primary language, and cultural background.

 

At Smarty Pants, we feel that each child=s unique qualities should be nurtured. We view each child as an individual with needs and abilities that differ from other children. Every child has his/her own learning styles, special talents and unique gifts. Children of all abilities are accepted and families interested in having their child attend the program will be given an equal opportunity for admission.  Early childhood educators at Smarty Pants use developmentally appropriate practices and consider the unique needs of all children when planning. Staff will make every attempt to make any adaptations or modifications necessary to meet the needs of the children.  Schedules, routines and activities are flexible and early childhood educators will work with therapists, special educators and other professionals to integrate individual accommodations, modifications and strategies into classroom routines and activities. Any adaptations will be reviewed with families and other professionals supporting the child. We individualize instruction to address each child=s special qualities with a basic guideline to prepare them for KINDERGARTEN!

 

At Smarty Pants we:

  • Give children the opportunity to explore the world around them
  • Provide children with classroom materials designed to strengthen fine and gross motor, language, pre-math, music, art and social skill
  • Encourage independence
  • Nurture each child=s natural curiosity and enthusiasm
  • Help children develop respect and acceptance of self and others
  • Keep alive in children the imagination and sense of wonder that is the source of creativity and innovation
