Tauxemont Preschool believes that formal education is best begun in the first grade and that our primary purpose is to provide an environment for a child to grow emotionally, developmentally, physically, socially, and intellectually. In order to provide experiences of this nature, our preschool: provides a wide variety of activities geared to the proper age and skill level of the children; emphasizes personal standards and pride of achievement rather than simple conformity to group standards and encourages the child to recognize that the process is as important as the product; encourages creative arts in addition to crafts, and dramatic and creative play in addition to organized games and activities; considers individual needs and different rates of development in children along with the aims of group activity and socialization recognizes that the most desirable discipline is self-discipline, and that encouragement and consistent standards are more effective than punishment in the development of self-discipline offers a developmentally appropriate program with out the use of formal devices, drills, competitive learning, or rigid routines.
