Westwood Preschool

Mission Statement

Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing, child-centered environment - in order to help each child develop cognitively, emotionally, physically and socially on an individual basis, at his/her own level of readiness.

 

Our Philosophy

We believe that children learn through play.  Activities that capture young children’s interest provide for optimum development.

 

Classes for 3 - 5 year olds

Westwood is a developmentally appropriate preschool for children ages 3 through 5. Our teachers have extensive experience in Early Childhood Education. We are licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and are inspected annually.  We have chosen to limit enrollment to 21 children in the 3 day class and 18 children in the 2 day class in order to achieve a more favorable teacher-child ratio. We have a lead teacher and assistant in each class plus a parent helper.  3 day classes ratio is 1 to 7 and 2 day classes’ ratio are 1 to 6.

 

 Parent Helper Program

We offer a Parent Helper Program which allows parents who want to be involved an opportunity to work in their child’s classroom one or two times each month. This is a unique opportunity to share a morning with your child at school.
