It is the philosophy of the Northeastern Local School District Preschool Programs to provide children a foundation of developmentally appropriate experiences where children are encouraged to learn and be successful in a safe and nurturing environment. The learning experiences serve as a bridge between home and the school setting to channel their natural enthusiasm and curiosity to set the stage for future learning.
We believe that each child is a unique individual and that all children can learn. Our preschool programs provide an inclusive setting that recognizes children’s varied abilities, interests, needs and learning styles.
We recognize that parents are the child’s first teachers. Children learn best when parents are involved in their educational program. The primary bridge between home and school is the involvement of family and community.
We believe children learn best through meaningful play. Our play-based, child centered program reflects the integration of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, language, self-help and aesthetic areas for the total development of the child. Meaningful play encourages curiosity, discovery and problem solving which allows individual growth and development of a positive self-image.
The Northeastern Local School Preschool Program strives to promote academic achievement by offering services to our early learners, while focusing on their diverse and individual needs. We strive to collaborate with parents and students to create a high quality program, in which each child is a valued member of our learning community.
There are two preschool classrooms within the district. Each classroom has one classroom teacher and one paraprofessional. Morning and afternoon sessions are offered.
