Philosophy

Mt. Seymour Preschool has always been a play based program but in recent years has added more focused components to the play based curriculum as a result of staff study of the preschools of Reggio Emilia, Italy. The goal of the preschool is to provide children with a rich and supportive environment where they can learn in developmentally appropriate ways, form deep and meaningful relationships with peers and teachers and have an authentic childhood experience. More details about current programs, goals and objectives can be found in the program and goals and objectives sections of this site.

Mt. Seymour Preschool works to build community among the families in the preschool. Parents are welcome to volunteer in the classes, to come on field trips in the community and to help operate the preschool by donating their time and talents to the board of directors. We also respect the fact that many families have very full lives, so parent participation is on a voluntary basis. We produce a monthly newsletter to keep parents informed about what projects the children are working on. Documentation panels and booklets are displayed in the room so parents can share in the learning process of their children. Teachers are always available, in person or via telephone conferences to share their observations with families.
