Paper Crown Preschool provides meaningful educational opportunities through play within a warm and naturalistic environment. Young children are active learners who benefit most from hands-on activities. Our classroom teachers approach every activity with the intention of creating a meaningful learning experience that is individualized to meet each child’s needs. We are comprised of one toddler classroom and one pre-k classroom, providing an intimate experience for families.
Even the best curriculum can fall short in an environment that is not conducive to learning. Professional experience and research points to minimalist-style classrooms as the most effective for learning. When distractions are minimized, children are able to focus and engage in more intentional play, creating a more meaningful learning experience.
Paper Crown Preschool follows Waldorf recommendations which include soft tones, mostly organic material (wood, cotton, wool, etc.), and limited classroom decor. Preventing overstimulation not only helps promote focused learning, but also supports the growth of a happy, healthy child.
At Paper Crown Preschool we also believe in the importance of time outdoors as there are lessons learned in nature that cannot be taught within the classroom.
Time spent outdoors enhances creative play, provides natural opportunities for the development of social and motor skills, and teaches children an appreciation for the world around them.
