Where children discover new skills, Acquire new knowledge,
Gain new confidence, Form new friendships, And become curious learners.
San Mateo Park Preschool provides a high quality preschool program designed to develop each child’s cognitive, physical, social, and emotional skills. We recognize that children come to school with their own unique experiences and learning styles and with an innate desire to learn. Our highly trained and caring teachers provide a stimulating and enriched environment that develops each child’s love of learning, self-esteem, autonomy, and respect of self and others. Our curriculum is based on children’s interests and proven child development practices that recognize play as the natural way through which children learn. Our children learn about the world around them through meaningful interactions with adults, children and materials. Our program blends teacher directed and child-initiated activities; quiet and active projects; large group, small group and individual activities, and indoor and outdoor time. The development of the “whole child” is nurtured and valued.
Throughout the day, children are engaged in activities that match their developmental needs. Our preschool program provides a language-rich and print-rich environment that supports children’s language and literacy development and lays the foundation for success in language arts in kindergarten and beyond. Science, math, art and cooking projects allow for exploration, observation and experimentation. Through meaningful and relevant activities, children acquire kindergarten readiness skills and the disposition to be life-long learners.
