Successful beginnings are best achieved when the earliest learning experiences are positive ones. When a young child feels good about school, attitudes are formed that promote a lifetime of intellectual growth and inquisitiveness. Pre-Kindergarten teachers nurture children to become confident leaders. They foster each child's emotional, social, and academic development through hands-on learning, exploration, and creativity. In a variety of structured settings, they learn independence, cooperation, and tolerance.
