Philosophy of St. Charles School Preschool
St. Charles School Preschool philosophy is to establish a learning experience in a Catholic environment. Each child will maximize his/her physical, social, emotional and intellectual potential. Students will be instilled with the values of respect and responsibility. The curriculum, in conjunction with an experienced and dedicated staff, will ensure the successful implementation of our philosophy. Parents have both the right and responsibility to share in all decisions affecting the care and education of their children.
The goals of St. Charles School Preschool are to encourage each child to:
- Develop Christian attitudes in sharing, taking turns, listening, helping, loving, thanking and celebrating
- Enjoy and interact with other children
- Grow in language development
- Develop positive concepts about family, friends, church and school

- Explore the environment using the five senses with many “hands-on” experiences
