At Emmanuel Preschool (EPS), we believe that children learn best through play and their relationships and interactions with peers and caring adults. We strive to: 

  • Foster children’s cognitive development and social/emotional growth
  • Encourage children to practice specific social skills (taking turns; sharing; respecting oneself, others and the environment) and to develop independence
  • Provide developmentally appropriate opportunities to practice problem-solving and decision-making skills
  • Cultivate children’s self-expression through imagination, creativity and language
  • Use a play-based curriculum to teach literacy, math, science, art, music and communication skills in a way that piques children’s interest and curiosity
  • Provide opportunities for physical activity to foster both gross and fine motor development and build small and large muscle skills through varied forms of play
