The child's role at LPCNS is to come to school as they are. We believe in meeting children and working with them within their capacities. For all children, we strive to support them as they meet:
Social emotional goals such as: building a positive self image, learning how to define and regulate emotions, becoming more autonomous in their thinking and actions, demonstrating persistence, learning how to negotiate with peers and participate in social problem solving, and master the beginning stages of true friendship.
Cognitive goals such as: planning, organizing, strategizing, paying attention to and remembering details, and managing time and space, coupled with numerous experiences with language, science and math activities that nurture school readiness skills.
Creative goals that support: a child's idea of self as an explorer, an artist, a writer, and a person who is capable of creating something that expresses the way they feel on the inside.
Physical goals that strengthen: each child's small and large muscles to support their ability to run, jump, build, climb, draw, write, and interact with one another in our different play spaces.
