“Whoever touches the life of the child, touches the most sensitive point of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs towards the infinite future.”

–Maria Montessori

Dear Parent,

At Caterpillar Cottage Preschool:

  • Every child is unique.

Our learning environment and approach are designed to support the learning and play of each child enrolled.

We use the child's natural interests and ideas to motivate learning, creating and building on teachable moments.

  • Learning is play-based.

We take play seriously, as the natural work of the child, providing a variety of fun-filled group and individual learning activities each day.

  • Children learn self-regulation and social emotional skills.

Teachers model empathy and teach conflict resolution skills, developing children's ability to cope with normal daily conflicts.

  • You know how your child is doing.

We use multiple pathways of communication to keep parents apprised of their child's progress.

I would be delighted to hear from you. Feel free to contact me with your questions or to schedule a visit to our program.
