Natick Preschool believes that each child has individual needs. We believe that children need varied and rich learning opportunities that are developmentally appropriate, built upon success, and provided in a nurturing and safe environment. Because children develop and learn at different rates, Natick Preschool embraces diversity, providing a broad spectrum of learning opportunities and instructional strategies in language-based classrooms that address the needs of students with and without disabilities. Natick Preschool believes that children learn most effectively within natural social settings that include ample opportunities to play. Embedded in the everyday preschool routines are opportunities for children to increase their language, social skills, play and academic readiness. The Natick Preschool believes that families play an integral part of a quality preschool experience. Maintaining close and ongoing communication and collaboration between families and staff is a high priority.
