Preschool

What is Pre-School in ESLR?

The Pre-School program is based on the following beliefs relating to young children, their home and environments.

  • Children develop through similar stages but at individual rates. The program provides learning experiences that meet individual and group needs, interests and developmental levels.
  • Young children are naturally curious and eager to learn. They benefit from developing positive relationships with others including children of their own age. The program provides opportunities for children to learn about their environment through organized activities, purposeful play and cooperation with others.
  • Parents are their children's first and most important teachers and play a central role in the lives of their children. The program supports and respects the dignity and worth of the family and encourages parents to participate in their children's education.
