St. Anthony's preschool's philosophy is based on the belief that children need time to experience their childhood through exploration and discovery. St. Anthony Preschool strives to provide a warm, supportive, and developmentally appropriate environment that will maximize this exploration and discovery. Children process knowledge by using their whole self to gather information; therefore, the more involved the experience, the greater the potential for learning. Play is an important part of the learning process. Play is powerful and child centered. Play is learning for the young child.
