Toluca Crossroads Preschool and Kindergarten draws on a developmental curriculum which includes basic academic knowledge, development and mastery of social, emotional and physical skills, and learning centers for children to express their own ideas. We believe in creating an environment that is not only fun and safe but one in which a child’s self-esteem, independence, critical thinking and creativity are able to flourish. Children are active learners who learn through play. Their world is one of discovery and exploration. Our teachers observe the children and respond to activities initiated by the child. Through our loving, innovative, and supportive staff, we lay the foundation for each and every child to grow into and become well-rounded individuals. We keep in mind and have respect for the wide individual differences and encourage each child to develop and learn at their own individual pace. Attention is given to the special unique qualities of each child to help them become compassionate, caring, respectful participants who are socially competent in their family, school, community and the global community. Our nurturing environment is a place where every child feels valued and where diversity in culture is celebrated. Our purpose is to nourish a foundation that promotes well-rounded students who live with the values of mutual respect, high self-esteem and self-worth, effective communication skills, consideration for objects as well as being mindful of other people’s feelings, taking responsibility for one’s actions, and creating trusting relationships amongst peers, with teacher’s and parents, and in their communities. We want to give our part in making a positive contribution to helping you raise the leaders of tomorrow.
