Early Horizons Preschool
embracing children and families in a safe, diverse environment where children excel physically, socially and cognitively through hands-on learning since 1984.
Early Horizons believes in hands-on learning in all areas of curriculum. Children learn more from interacting with materials and the world around them, rather than from adults trying to explain concepts to them. Play is life for young children. Play enables children to learn through curiosity, invention, and persistence. Children’s attention span is surprisingly long when they are interested in what they are working on. Play allows children to master basic skills without pressure. Play encourages problem solving. Our role as caregivers is to set up an environment rich with materials that offer children the ability to play and learn. By interspersing adult directed activities with child initiated play we insure the development of the whole child.
Using play as the basis, we have created the LifeStart curriculum: a unique, developmental program that honors the whole child while providing developmentally appropriate activities for each age level. We have taken the latest in brain development research, combined it with classic early childhood methods such as Piaget, Montessori, and R.I.E., and incorporated the NAEYC standards to develop this wonderful curriculum.
At Early Horizons, we like to provide an inclusive environment for all. We pride ourselves in celebrating everything, from all holidays to social justice movements. We teach children to explore all parts of their world while educating them on becoming an accepting, loving, and caring individual. While you may think your child is too young to learn about certain topics, it's actually quite the opposite. Children are exposed to everyday life and the reality that comes with it when they overhear the adults around them talking, when they see the images on an adult’s phone, when they watch YouTube videos (yes, even on YouTubeKids!), when they see what you may be watching on the news, or even when simply observing others in their community. At Early Horizons, we celebrate people’s differences and uniqueness, instead of learning to simply tolerate them or live colorblind. Here, children will learn that Love is Love and Black Lives Matter. They will learn that there is no reason anyone should go to bed hungry or not have the same rights as others because of how they identify or because they are a person of color. Children at Early Horizons will be educated on recognizing all history for what it really was, and still is. Our mission at Early Horizons is to provide a safe environment for all and help raise the future generations to become compassionate and loving leaders.
