At Canby Community Preschool our philosophy is to nurture a child’s individuality and innate curiosities while instilling the desire to be a lifelong, inquisitive learner inspired by the world around them. It is our goal that every child will find that learning is an exciting and enriching adventure.
Our preschool setting is designed to support a child’s growth in four developmental areas: brain, self-regulation, social/emotional and academic skills. We believe children learn best through direct interaction, also referred to as "hands on play", while exploring their surroundings. Children need time to play, problem-solve, observe, predict, explore and create to begin to construct an understanding of school, community and the world they live in.
Parent participation is an essential element of our school and their presence enables the teachers to offer activities and experiments that would be difficult without the extra support. Having parents in the classroom also increases a child’s confidence. Parents work alongside the teachers, bringing the classroom alive with fun activities the children thoroughly enjoy.
We celebrate and accept that every child is a unique individual. At CCP we believe what truly makes a difference in a child’s life, beneath all the methods, materials and the curriculum is a teacher who cares about each child and who teaches from the heart.
