A Commitment to Community
Why Choose the Montclair Community Pre-K
The Montclair Community Pre-K is a vibrant pre-school community for 3 and 4 year old children that is committed to excellence in early childhood education. Our program is based on the following principles that help to ensure that children thrive, learn and grow in a safe, healthy, joyful environment:
· Educational Excellence: Our curriculum focuses on developmentally appropriate skills and kindergarten preparedness. The foundation of our curriculum is found in the work of Harvard Professor Dr. Howard Gardner and his theory of Multiple Intelligences. This approach recognizes that children have different strengths and seeks to build on these strengths to promote both educational growth and a love of learning. Our program provides hands-on exploration and discovery learning and actively incorporates the interests of the children in developing classroom curricula.
· Dedication to Diversity: The Montclair Community Pre-K mirrors the best attribute of this wonderful community – its diversity. We are proudly committed to being a diverse learning community. We believe helping children understand and respect differences of all kinds is an integral part of a high quality educational program.
· Community Spirit: We develop community in each classroom as children begin their journey of citizenship, learning to become part of the greater community in which they live. Attending the Montclair Community Pre-K is not just an experience for your child - it is an experience for the entire family unit. There is a strong community spirit between school and home, and across homes as families become connected to each other.
· Supporting families: We strive to be a warm, caring place where children and their families love to come each morning! At the Montclair Community Pre-K, you can feel the joy when you walk in the door. We take care of your children and support the entire family.
