MADEIRA PRESCHOOL PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
A school community where learning is personalized and success is ensured.
The educational philosophy of the Madeira Preschool program is based on a developmental approach to education. Programming is planned to meet each child’s social, emotional, cultural, cognitive and physical needs as the child passes through predictable and sequential stages of development.
Child-directed, teacher supported, exploration and learning experiences are designed so that each child can construct knowledge at their own developmental level and pace. This constructivist model allows children to become active participants in the learning process. Trust, social interaction, play and growing independence are seen as the foundations on which children develop problem-solving skills, language and self-esteem.
Families are considered an integral part of the learning experience. They are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s educational program.
