Statement of Philosophy and Objectives
The purpose of Potomac Nursery School is to provide a nursery school program that will benefit the child, the parents, and the community. We are committed to the development of a well-rounded child with a positive self-image. We believe that exposure to peers in a social atmosphere and the development of skills through the use of appropriate instructional and manipulative materials, in an environment specifically designed for children, will help us to realize that commitment. We will achieve our goals and objectives by implementing the following:
promote health, physical growth, and motor development
strengthen inner emotional controls
recognize reasonable limits and influence growth towards self-discipline
foster security with adults
stimulate liking for children of different ages and backgrounds
promote language skills
free self-expression in art, music, and dance
broaden intellectual horizons
help children to observe, investigate, seek, and acquire information, and think critically.
Classes are established with the well-being of the individual child uproots in mind. We take into consideration staff-child ratio and mandatory training of teachers in Early Childhood Education, augmented by a loving, child-oriented staff.
