Second Congregational Preschool Mission Statement


The mission of Second Congregational UCC Preschool is to provide a safe, nurturing, play-based learning environment that helps the child to grow socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. We include families and the community as partners in the child’s educational experience.


Our Philosopy

​​​​​​​

We believe young children are capable individuals who learn best through play. Open-ended materials and opportunities for child-directed play encourage independence, creativity, discovery, problem-solving and self-esteem.  Teachers extend the child’s learning through teacher-led activities and by providing an enriching environment, engaging with the children during play and watching for that teachable moment.  Our program builds capable, confident children, instilled with a life-long love of learning.
