Philosophy

Butterfly Garden is an eclectic preschool whose mission is to allow all children to grow in their independence, develop a strong sense of self, and be able to use their creativity in working and learning as healthy, thinking individuals. The school environment instills a love for learning and is a place where children can explore and learn at their own pace. We provide many opportunities for problem solving both individually and in groups.

The preschool is organized around learning centers in a hands-on, child-directed environment. The curriculum supports our philosophy of a child-directed, respectful, and fun place to learn and grow. Our preschool seeks to provide a physically safe and emotionally secure setting that encourages the development of the "whole child." It is our belief that children learn best when they are provided with an opportunity to freely explore their environment. Children learn through their direct interactions with the environment and the people within it. A loving, positive environment within a small school "family" creates a sense of belonging.
