Good Samaritan Preschool offers hands-on, developmentally appropriate programs that foster a child's development in the areas of physical, social, emotional, cognitive, language, and spiritual growth. Our philosophy at Good Samaritan is based on the following basic principles:
- Children learn through active exploration. Our program provides an environment that encourages children to actively explore and manipulate materials.
- Children initiate their own learning. Classroom environments at Good Samaritan are carefully structured into activity centers. Children are encouraged to explore freely in an open classroom environment.
- Learning comes from open-ended experiences. Children's imaginations, reasoning skills, and self-confidence are developed by creative problem solving. The emphasis is on discovery and the learning process.
- Adults are facilitators of children's learning. Teachers ask questions and encourage discussion from the children in the school. Teachers create environments that make learning fun and interactive.
The Good Samaritan Preschool is an outreach ministry of theGood Samaritan United Methodist Church. Our mission is to celebrate the spirit and encourage the development of each child.
The Good Samaritan Preschool is a second family and community school for the whole child.
