Mandeville Pre-School Community

With the knowledge that the first three years of life are so important to brain development, the preschool classroom is designed to provide the two year old with sensorial development of visual discrimination of size, shape and colors, sound discrimination, language development and introduction to mathematics. The classrooms have areas for art expression and daily living skills (pouring, spooning, cleaning). While there is much intellectual stimulation, our emphasis is always on nurture of each child’s uniqueness. Singing, signing, stories, music and movement are part of the preschooler’s days. Frequent cooking projects are built into our week. Social skills continue to be developed, as is the ongoing acquisition of verbal skills.


Great emphasis is placed on recognizing, respecting and appropriately expressing feelings. Our practical life skills are refined as children learn grace and courtesy manners during lunch.  Children learn to push their chairs back under the table and to scrape their plates and help clean the classroom. Friends are a great part of the children’s days. Outside play provides many opportunities for developing gross motor skills and for social interaction too. We recognize the importance and privilege we have in the loving nurture of these precious children. Hugs, smiles and love are a part of every child’s days.
