Philosophy of St. David’s Episcopal Church Preschool
St. Davidís Preschool is a ministry of St. Davidís Episcopal Church. The Preschool Director is Peggy Fallon.
The mission of our preschool is to seek to serve young children and their families in the Roswell/Alpharetta area community. We believe a good preschool program should be based on developmental principles and this is the basis of designing educational experiences. Our curriculum is directed toward the formation of basic concepts and readiness skills though the use of many varied ďhands onĒ, concrete learning experiences.
A young childís environment should provide many opportunities for play, exploration, and creative activities which promote skills in problem solving , thinking and reasoning, language and socialization. Much emphasis is placed on a childís physical developmentósmall and large motoróas this critically affects all other areas of developmental learning.
Above all, we believe that each child is sacred, special, and unique. We seek to meet his or her particular individual needs in a secure, emotionally supportive environment. Every child is treated, at all times, as Godís own and is treated in a fashion which would please Jesus Christ, a lover of children. It is our sincere hope that the children who come to St. Davidís Preschool will find a joyful, enriching learning experience that will develop a love for learning and a sense of security that will last a lifetime.
The teaching staff of St. Davidís Preschool consists of a teaching
team of two teachers, each with experience in early childhood education
and trained in Infant/Child CPR and first aid. The classes meet in the
Sunday School classrooms, most of which have small bathrooms between
adjoining rooms. The children also utilize the churchís music room and
parish hall for Music and Movement, preschool chapel, and three
different shaded, gated, age-appropriate playgrounds.
