The philosophy of the Priddis Early Learning Program is:
POSITIVE EXPERIENCES THROUGH PLAY AND GUIDED INSTRUCTION
In keeping with this philosophy, the program is designed to offer children the freedom to
choose from a variety of experiences. Play, art and craft time, and circle time provide stimulating and interesting opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills, as well as build confidence at their own individual pace.
The teacher plans these activities to further the children’s learning by encouraging them
to use their skill and develop their imagination while providing a happy and stimulating environment.
All children need unconditional love and acceptance in order to develop a sense of
personal worth. Viewing your children as worthwhile individuals and encouraging them to choose from and succeed at various activities helps develop the feeling of confidence and self-acceptance.
It is the Program Policy to provide a quality program for children, rich in variety and
opportunity, while always keeping in mind that kids can be kids!
