Play Partners: Piper Preschool has an educational philosophy that is uniquely its own. They created a blended approach that provides children with the best of both the developmental and academic approaches. Beginning with an emergent curriculum, children are gradually exposed to components of traditional education as they progress through the school.
Grown-up Tip: A child’s relationship with a grandparent provides an additional bond and experience than with a parent. It’s important for children to learn from other adults that can teach tradition, trust and family history and culture.
