The first years of a child’s life are the most influential. During these years a child develops the social, emotional, and cognitive skills needed to succeed. Island Prep provides an enriching environment that encourages the students to explore, create, interact, and discover in a positive setting. The classrooms are designed to meet each developing stage in a child’s life. The teachers at Island Prep also understand how important it is to guide the students into purposeful play. Each day, teachers plan activities that teach the students the importance of exploring and discovering their own likes and dislikes. Island Prep provides the students a place to learn, play, and explore the world around them.
Island Prep is different. You will not find brightly colored walls or numerous plastic toys. Instead you will find a melodious oasis filled with children working with wood towers or watering the classroom plants. Island Prep provides a serene environment that does not distract the students but enhances his/her ability to discover and blossom academically, socially, and emotionally. Each item in the class has been purposefully placed to enrich the child’s learning in some way.
Island Prep is also an Eco-Friendly learning center. The students learn the importance of recycling and saving the Earth’s precious resources. The staff and families of Island Prep take pride in knowing that we are doing all that we can to protect our planet.
We want to welcome your family to the Island Prep family! Thank you for sharing our philosophy on childcare and education!
