Vision & Purpose

Vision

Our vision at the Glenn School is to enable each child to develop at his or her own pace by providing a well designed play-based, balanced program.   Our goal is to nurture each child and their family though the preschool years and lay a strong foundation for a confident, responsible and caring learner.

 

Philosophy and Goals

At the Glenn School for Young Children, we believe a child's self-confidence builds social competence. Guided by this belief, our approach to learning embraces the whole child and encourages each one's developing sense of self and emerging social skills. We are intentional about engaging, supporting, and challenging each child as they experience the exciting world of friends, ideas, and knowledge.

We also believe that the young child learns best through play, and we incorporate this philosophy into our curriculum, emphasizing developmentally appropriate practices for ages 6 months - 6 years to address the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive growth of each child. Our goal is to foster an environment of mutual respect, cooperation, and responsibility which encourages children to have fun learning and relating to others which prepares them to feel confident and competent in their larger world.
