Old Friends, New Friends, and Friends Yet to Come

The San Anselmo Preschool Center is committed to the growth of each child in an emotionally supportive environment that encourages self-acceptance and self-exploration. We offer a program that blends teacher directed activities and self-initiated learning in a setting that includes art, music, dramatic play, pre-reading manipulatives, large motor activities, and “hands on” natural science.

Our philosophy respects the autonomy of the child in various different learning situations. Teachers are alert, and ready to protect, counsel and guide at the right moment. We believe that children can learn to work out problems and conflicts when given the opportunity.

Our emphasis is on the process more than the product of learning. It is our goal to plant within each child the seed of confidence that grows with every success in meeting a challenge. Through careful selection of learning materials, we hope to instill in our children the desire, the need, and the joy of learning.
