Mona Shores Preschool
Welcome to Mona Shores Preschool! We hope to offer your child a variety of experiences that are worthwhile and meaningful to young minds and bodies. Our philosophy emphasizes the total development of each child. Activities are designed to promote physical, intellectual, social, and emotional growth. In this, our 38th year, we are proud to enjoy a reputation as the top, longest-running preschool in the area. The Mona Shores Preschool Program will provide a positive, safe, nurturing environment in which children can develop the social and emotional skills necessary to encourage learning.
In addition, we will foster in our students a sense of responsibility, cooperation, self-reliance, playfulness and positive self-esteem, while offering many chances to experience success. We will encourage creativity and individual differences, and build on motor skill development to help students master simple tasks.
Our staff is selected by considering academic qualifications, experience teaching preschool age children and the desire to teach this age group. All teachers have bachelor's degree with elementary certification and twelve credits in early childhood education. Teachers are encouraged to bring their individuality and special talents to the classroom.
The high quality of preschool education at Mona Shores is assured by maintaining ratios of 12 students per certified teacher in the Pre-K and four-year-old sections and 10 students per certified teacher in three-year-old sessions. (10/1/ratios in early 4's classroom).
