Goals For the Child, the Parent, and the Community

Goals for the Child

  • Provide opportunities for interacting with other children and developing social skills.
  • Encourage safe appropriate play that contributes to the developmental needs of the child.
  • Provide opportunities for meaningful play that will help empower the child to explore their abilities to communicate, investigate their environment, and express themselves.
  • Cultivate an appreciation of the natural treasures of the Roaring Fork Valley with local field trips and by inviting local organizations to visit our school.

  • Foster a family atmosphere by joining together for community picnics, carnivals, and local events.
