Imagine Preschool
Imagine Preschool's director, Suraiya, has 15 years of teaching experience. She has helped other schools develop meaningful curriculum before starting her own school. Imagine Preschool is in a beautiful home setting in the heart of the La Crescenta mountains and a fully licensed large daycare. Imagine is a unique school because it follows the Reggio-Emilia approach to education- "an excellence in early childhood care". We believe that every child is intelligent, capable, and a protagonist in his own learning. Therefore we foster critical thinking, creativity, and of course, imagination! Our teachers follow the interests’ of the child and create individualized projects. These projects require working with professional artist materials for building, drawing, painting, sculpture, clay, wire work, and so much more, to develop social, reading, writing, science and number knowledge. Also Spanish, music, and yoga is part of the daily curriculum. Visit our website and Gallery page to see examples of the children’s work. We invite you to take a tour as we are currently enrolling. Our teaching focuses on healthy social and emotional skills, which are modeled by our teaching staff, who have had a minimum of 5 years of teaching experience. The teachers also guide children’s behavior through conflicts, by working in small groups, teachers are able to observe children closely. Teachers use inquiry-based language to encourage children to explore and discover their own answers and to develop their own theories about the world around them. Teachers partner with children to help each child discover his or her place in the world.
