Mission: We are committed to families by working together to provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment that supports and encourages growth in all areas of development. We guide all children toward competence and independence while maintaining a sense of belonging to the program, community and our diverse and ever changing world.
Philosophy and Goals: WWPS HS/ECEAP seeks to provide programming that will enhance children's growth and development in preparation for later academic and social pursuits. We believe the preschool years and the experiences that children have during these years are important to successful development; therefore we make every effort to provide the highest quality program possible. We believe that growth and development are multi-dimensional; therefore we offer the comprehensive services of education, medical, dental, and nutritional health, and social services.
We believe that children with handicapping conditions both benefit from and contribute to programming for preschool children; therefore we make a special effort to serve and support children with handicapping conditions. We value diversity as a positive force and appreciate each student's and each parent's identity, language, and culture. We recognize the importance of oral language development in each student's primary language.
Finally, we believe that parents are the most important people in children's lives and that the support parents give children as they grow and develop is crucial to their future success; therefore we involve parents in all aspects of the program and support them in their role as parents.
