Our Mission:
GRCP fosters the individuality of each child, supporting outdoor-based, unstructured play to guide them in the development of positive relationships toward themselves, others, and the natural world.
Our Philosophy:

At GRCP we believe in learning through play and feel that young children learn best in a natural setting that allows them to be active participants.  The classroom provides developmentally appropriate opportunities to stimulate each child’s physical, intellectual, social, and emotional growth. 

 

As a cooperative preschool, we believe that families and teachers working together provide the best environment for a child’s education and development.  GRCP values diversity and respects differences among all children and families. 

 

Together, we help the children become self-confident, independent problem-solvers who effectively manage their environment through language and appropriate action.
