Program Philosophy

At the Marion Cross Pre-K, we believe that play is the work of children.  Through individual, small-group, and whole-group play experiences, children develop physical, cognitive, artistic, and social skills.

We believe that children are innately curious and that outdoor play in nature improves children's physical, cognitive, emotional, and social abilities as they explore, observe, wonder, experiment, and problem solve.

We recognize that young children are continually learning, growing, and figuring out the world.  We welcome children as they are and provide a safe and supportive environment where they can develop a love of learning.
