Hampstead Preschool of the Arts

Our Philosophy

By providing a setting which fosters self-esteem, builds confidence and is based on respect, it is our goal that the children will be empowered to take risks in their learning. Developing a profound respect for each child and understanding the important role played by his/her parent or guardian is central to our philosophy. We seek to establish a positive personal interaction with our children and we regard each child as an important, capable individual. We believe that young children are concrete learners who learn by doing. Children use all of their senses to explore and learn about their environment. They feel a sense of security from pattern, rhythm, and predictability within their days. Young children are looking to the adults in their lives to provide a safe and nurturing environment where they have lots of time for uninterrupted play, to participate in real-life activities, and to simply enjoy being a child.
