The Princeton Community Preschool was founded in 1990 and has operated continuously ever since. We are conveniently located in the center of town in the First Congregational Church. Because of the proximity to the town center, we are able to take walking field trips to the Princeton library, the Common, police station, and fire station.
Our preschool provides our children with a safe, nurturing and stimulating physical and personal environment that fosters individual development. We welcome all children and families, regardless of their race, religion, national origin, political beliefs, sex, cultural heritage, marital status, abilities or sexual orientation.
We want your child to have an enjoyable experience by instilling the love of active learning. Process art is an important part of our curriculum. This is a space where children feel comfortable and supported to try out new things, test out their hypotheses and to create whatever they can imagine!
Children develop and grow at different rates. We tailor our program to be developmentally appropriate so as to nurture and challenge each child and meet his/her individual needs regarding cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and moral development.
To create an inspiring environment where each child is celebrated, where each child feels safe, confident, successful in their work, creative, loved, happy, nurtured and free to be. A place where children and their parents build lifelong relationships.
We have a dedicated team of educators .
- recognize that play is the work of children.
- foster and encourage children’s unique talents and interests.
- gently guide children to their own solutions to conflicts.
- recognize that children “construct” knowledge about the world through the experiences provided for them.
- challenge the children through collaborative projects, inclusive play and learning to become a contributing member of our community.
- facilitate play instead of directing play.
- find fun in the days!
