Mission: As a pre-schhol provider, poker hill school views learning developmentally. It is a process which we can nurture and guide but we trust each child to develop in his or her own unique way. We support each childs growth as an autonomous individual within a caring and democratic community. We strive to make each child feel respected and valued. Teachers facilitate childrens growth by encouraging the children to make significant decisions to direct their own path of learning. Children select their own chores, have large blocks of free play, and choose their own activities for morning activity time. The teachers also attempt to reflect the childrens interests and needs in both our large group and small group planning.
Programs: Poker hill school is an activity-oriented pre-school affording 80 students the opportunity to learn by doing, seeing, and listening. Students are encouraged to solve academic problems in their own ways and are guided in the process by their teachers.
