In line with her philosophy that meeting a young child’s physical, academic, social and emotional needs reaps benefits that last a lifetime, “Morah Shaina” develops the preschool program to address all areas of early childhood development. Together with open ended and mutli-sensory learning experiences that incorporate joy, exploration and skills into every preschool theme, she strives to create an environment where children feel safe and loved so that they can develop to their fullest potential. She believes that curriculum should be driven by the students’ interests and creativity so that all of their daily experiences help them to develop to feel special. Understanding that every child develops at a unique pace, she works closely with the teachers to ensure that each child’s needs are met and that they each enjoy an enriching and happy experience at the preschool.
