Program Mission & Philosophy
Weekday Preschool is a non-profit center for children and their families devoted to a safe, healthy, inclusive and nurturing environment. There is an emphasis on social, emotional and spiritual growth through meaningful playbased learning opportunities. While we preserve the integrity of our own Christian identity, we respect the diverse religious, cultural and family structures of all people.
At Weekday Preschool, our concern is for the whole child. Our teachers facilitate learning through selected, child-centered activities that are appropriate for each child’s age and developmental level. We foster a positive sense of each child’s self-worth and a belief in their ability to be independent individuals.
You have chosen an early childhood program for your child that is accredited by the National Association for the Educations of Young Children. NAEYC administers the largest and most widely recognized accreditation system for all types of early childhood schools and child care centers. NAEYC is the nation’s largest organization of early childhood educators.
What is Accreditation?
Early childhood programs accredited by the NAEYC Academy for Early Childhood Program Accreditation have voluntarily undergone a comprehensive process of internal self-stuy, invited external professional review to verify compliance with the Criteria for High Quality Early Childhood Programs, and been found to be in substantial compliance with the Criteria. The Criteria can be found on the NAEYC’s website.
