St. Peter Early Childhood Center
The mission of St. Peter Early Childhood Center is to establish a Catholic Christian environment that promotes values and supports positive relationships and respectful interactions. Each child will maximize their learning potential through guided learning experiences that fosters the intellectual, creative, social, emotional, physical and developmental growth of our students.
The educational philosophy at St. Peter Early Childhood Center is child centered and developmentally based. We believe that children learn best through play and exploration of their environment. Positive play experiences, with a variety of hands-on activities and social interactions with adults and peers, fosters the development of young children and helps them to understand the world around them.
We believe in developing the curriculum to fit each child’s individual needs and promote creativity in young children. Our goal is to help children become enthusiastic learners therefore, we strive to provide an environment rich in meaningful play experiences that allow children to “have fun” while they learn.
We recognize that parents are the child’s first teachers. Children learn best when parents are involved in their educational program. The primary bridge between home and school is the involvement of family and community.
