Our Philosophy of Learning

Learning (width 270)

Play is regarded by early childhood specialists as the extraordinary educational process by which preschool children become introduced to a world filled with new and exciting discoveries. The preschool staff believes that “Growing through Play” describes our strategy in meeting the needs of young children. Based on the theory that children learn through play, classroom routines encourage active involvement with materials and reinforcement through repetition. Children are challenged, with new materials being presented weekly. Classroom schedules are designed to balance structure and free choice as well as active and quiet times. Children explore centers and are encouraged to use skills as they become developmentally ready. Encouraging children to express themselves freely, to communicate with others, and to follow their natural instincts of discovery are all goals of the BTPD preschool programs. The Bourbonnais Township Park District staff is committed to a philosophy of “learning through play”.
