Preschool and Pre-K Mission Statement

The mission of Horizons Child Care and Learning Services Preschool and Pre-K Class is to nurture the emotional, social, and cognitive development of children 3 to 5 years of age by creating an environment that is a blend of child-led and teacher guided. Our curriculum is based on Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards and is flexible to meet the needs of each individual child. Academic focus is on emergent literacy skills, math and reasoning, and Kindergarten readiness.Our preschool program fosters a caring environment that promotes cooperation, cultural diversity & values, and positive relationships & interactions.

In recognizing the vast differences in ability between the ages of 3 to 5, our program offers both individual and small group activities to make sure the academic needs of all children are being met. Our enviroment is changable to encourage fostering frienships, cooperation, and respecting the needs of each child as an individual.

Our program opens the world of the arts, music, science, and more to children. Ideas are reinforced through teachings, discussions, play, and field trips. Our center has a large outside play area that children visit daily in order to increase gross motor skills and gain self-confidence in abilities. Healthy meals and snacks are provided daily as part of tuition.
