What makes a great preschool? At Aspen Academy Pre-K program we believe it starts with providing a safe and caring atmosphere where children and families feel welcome and important. We recognize and value the trust placed in us to be one of a child’s first teacher.
Our developmentally appropriate program believes in supporting the whole child. Our program teaches through practices that understand a child learns best when their mental, emotional, physical and social needs are met in loving way. We understand that children come from all walks of life. As children join our program their individual differences are celebrated. We take joy in getting to know each child and we value lessons learned from each of our Aspen View Academy families.
Each classroom provides experiences that entice early learners into play experiences including art, science, reading, writing, math, dramatic play and physical activity. Early academics are shared and taught with the support of highly trained staff that prepares lessons to reach each child’s learning style. This is accomplished by embracing the theory of Multiple Intelligence's.
We believe that every child learns in different ways. By creating lessons and play experiences that reach the different types of learners, we know every child can grow at their own pace, in their own way. Led by their own curiosity students discover something new every day. Our goal is to teach a love for learning that will be the foundation for a lifelong learner.
Families play a vital role in our program. Children feel safe and can achieve success when they see their parents and teachers as partners. We welcome families into the classroom. Their involvement supports staff and builds a community of caregivers around each child.
