We are a community of families made up of parents and educators who believe that children learn best in a safe, nurturing environment, supported by a cooperative partnership of parents and teachers. FHP’s approach to early childhood education draws on the strengths of a variety of educational philosophies to provide each child with developmentally appropriate opportunities for social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Through personal experience, discovery, and play (the “work” of childhood), we cultivate children’s natural curiosity and foster respect for self, others, and the natural world.

As young children play, they develop strategies and form relationships that enable them to create a world that makes sense. Each year at Fort Hunt Preschool we work toward the following goals:
To provide a safe, healthy, attractive learning environment staffed by well trained, understanding teachers who encourage the development of a positive self-concept in each child;
To help each child understand his/her own feelings and emotions, as well as those of his/her peers, and to express them in constructive ways that enable him/her to interact with other children and adults in a positive manner;
To create a positive atmosphere and provide activities that encourage children to explore and discover the world in their own way and in their own time;
To provide activities and equipment that encourage the child’s physical development;
To provide a variety of equipment and materials in the areas of art, music literature and dramatics that will allow the children to manipulate, experiment and express the world as they see it;
To offer activities that encourage the development of language skills to the greatest extent possible;
To create an atmosphere in which parents can develop a better understanding of their own children by observing them in a group setting, and make a greater contribution to their own child’s growth and development by working in the classroom.
