PHILOSOPHY AND GOALS

  Grasshopper Green Preschool, established in 2007, is a private, non-sectarian preschool.Our goal is to make available an enriching preschool atmosphere fostering healthy physical, emotional and intellectual growth.

  The Staff is committed to providing a program that offers children enriching experiences that encourage them to observe the world around them.  Our program is designed to enhance a child's natural curiosity and love for learning!

  In order to achieve these goals Grasshopper Green Preschool has a flexible program. It is designed to meet different needs, that value diversity among children. Activities at Grasshopper Green Preschool are designed to encourage the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive growth of children. Children’s large muscle needs are met through the use of developmentally appropriate indoor and outdoor equipment, games, and projects. Puzzles, clay, scissors, and manipulative toys are used to encourage small muscle use.

  Activities designed to promote cooperation and social tolerance, playthings to develop self-reliance, projects designed to assist a child in learning problem solving, and the opportunity to participate in creative arts activities such as games, songs, creative movement, and yoga are all part of the program.  Health education experiences through the modeling of proper hand washing, nutrition, safety and health practices are included in the daily routine.

  Grasshopper Green Preschool recognizes the importance of children’s play. We have a daily free play time that enables children to learn negotiation and respect of other’s viewpoints. Free play teaches social, emotional, and academic proficiency. Children are able to develop abstract thinking and greater vocabularies.

  Grasshopper Green Preschool offers a safe, nurturing environment where your child will get the attention and care that he or she needs. Our ratio of children to teachers is always within state guidelines - and often lower - to make certain each child receives a top-quality education.  

Grasshopper Green Preschool is fully licensed by the State Department of Public Health and by the State Department of Education.
