Mission Statement / Philosophy:
ur mission statement for the Okotoks Preschool Academy is:
We want to introduce and instill young children with the love of life-long learning. Building an education is like building a house. The foundation must be solid in order for the house to support each floor (hence developmental level). A good strong foundation in the beginning of a child's education makes for greater success in their future school years.
Goals and Objectives:
Our goal is to have a healthy and well respected preschool that is known for its commitment to the "whole" child and to their years of early learning.
Objectives to meet this goal are to:
- to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to prepare the children for life-long learning
- to meet the needs of each individual student and work with them at their own pace and at the own developmental level
- to treat all children with strategies for success and learn through interaction with other children
- to encourage parents to become/continue involvement in their child's learning in and out of our preschool
