Peach State Academy prides itself in helping children become enthusiastic and lifelong learners. This means encouraging children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think their own thoughts. Our goal is to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive learners. We are teaching them how to learn, not just in preschool, but all through their lives. We are allowing them to learn at their own pace and in the ways that are best for them. We are giving them good habits and attitudes, particularly a positive sense of themselves, which will make a difference throughout their lives.
The activities we plan for children, the way we organize the environment, the selection of toys and materials, the daily classroom schedule, and the interactions and dialogue with children, are all designed to accomplish the goals of our curriculum and give each child a successful start in school.
