Our 
Approach

At CSY Preschool, we strive to partner with parents in helping their children to reach their full potential. Children are encouraged to be independent thinkers and life-long learners, which is cultivated in a secure and nurturing environment where each child can develop spiritually, socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically through discovery and exploration with developmentally appropriate learning experiences.

Our programs are focused on knowledge about what children are ready to learn, and how they will learn it most effectively. In our classrooms, there is a balance between whole group, small group and individual activity incorporating hands-on activities and active exploration. It is equipped with a wide variety of rich learning materials which children use in different ways depending upon their prior knowledge, their interests, and the teacher’s determination. Children are encouraged to actively explore these materials and interact with children and adults in the room in order to acquire skills, expand their knowledge and explore a variety of interests.

Materials are concrete, three-dimensional, and open-ended, allowing children to use them very differently based upon their developmental level. For instance, blocks may be manipulated and stacked by beginning learners, while becoming rich resources for exploring number relationships, geometry and more complex math concepts for other children.

Each child is seen as an individual with unique strengths and needs. It is the teacher’s role to identify those strengths and needs and to tailor opportunities and challenges for learning and growth for every child. Children will feel loved and know they are unique creations of God.
