Why We Choose to Invest in Teacher Mentorship and Extensive Training and Support for Our Staff
Fort Mill Cooperative Preschool!
At Fort Mill Cooperative Preschool, children learn through the Reggio Emilia approach which meets or exceeds the early learning standards in the state of South Carolina. Our program is implemented by experienced teachers who foster joy and encourage young children to explore, create, and experiment.
We see the child as continually developing in all areas including physical, social-emotional, cognitive, and creative domains. Each child is a unique individual worthy of respect and a loving response to their needs.
The child’s family is seen as an integral part of the program and they are invited to participate in all areas of the program.
"Families are the well spring that creates and nurtures the children in our classrooms. When working closely with families we help to foster their sense of belonging and their confidence. We help to strengthen parents’ capacity to support their children over a lifetime."
-Gayle Fischer and Bridget Murray, “When Teachers Reflect”
