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.
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.
