Our experienced teachers use a play-based approach to foster creativity and curiosity, while also providing developmentally appropriate activities and experiences that promote social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth. Our goal is to instill a love of learning in our students, so that they approach new challenges with confidence and enthusiasm.
Above all, we are dedicated to building positive relationships with our students and their families. Strong partnerships between home and school are essential for a child's success, and we work to ensure that every family feels valued and supported. Together, we can help your child learn and grow!
FishHawk Early Learning Center is a family-owned, private preschool. Our mission is to provide a nurturing environment where children can bloom, grow, and shine. We believe that every child has unique potential and that it is our responsibility to nourish their minds in a warm and engaged learning community that is never short on encouragement, smiles, and high-fives!
Watch a child, and you’ll learn how to truly learn. Their curiosity drives them to seek answers and explore possibilities. We believe when we nurture this innate sense of wonder, we can inspire a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.
Our experienced teachers use a play-based approach to encourage children to ask questions, explore their surroundings, and make connections between what they already know and what they are learning. We provide opportunities for children to investigate, experiment, and discover through hands-on activities that are designed to promote critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity.
By creating an environment that fosters curiosity and supports individuality, we help our students develop confidence, self-awareness, and a sense of purpose.
At our preschool, creativity is a cornerstone of our approach to education. We believe that creativity is not just an innate talent, but a skill that can be developed and nurtured through practice and exploration.
Our curriculum is designed to provide children with opportunities to express themselves, think critically, and innovate through art, music, storytelling, and play.
We encourage our students to use their imaginations and to take risks in their learning, whether that means trying out new ideas, experimenting with materials, or collaborating with others.
These creative experiences are not only enjoyable, but also essential for developing important skills such as problem-solving, communication, and self-expression.
Readiness is a foundational and grounding focus of our preschool program. We believe that children learn best when they are engaged and challenged at their individual level, and that preparing children for the next stage of their educational journey is an essential part of our role.
Our program strives to provide children with the skills and knowledge that they need to succeed in school and beyond. We focus on building foundational skills in areas such as language, literacy, math, and social-emotional development, while also providing opportunities for children to explore their interests and passions.
Our experienced teachers use a range of assessment tools to monitor each child's progress and to ensure that they are meeting their developmental milestones. We understand that children develop at different rates, and we work with each child to meet their next progress steps.
Readiness is not just about academic skills, but also about social and emotional readiness. Our school works to foster a sense of community and belonging, and we help children develop the self-regulation and social skills they need to thrive in a classroom setting.
The physical and emotional safety of our students is a top priority. We believe that children learn best when they feel secure and supported, and we are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for all of our students.
We maintain high standards for health and safety, including rigorous cleaning and disinfection protocols, Our facilities are designed with each child’s protection in mind, offering child-friendly materials, age-appropriate equipment, secure building access, and safe outdoor play areas.
In addition to physical safety, we recognize the importance of emotional safety for children. Our experienced teachers are trained to provide a warm and welcoming environment that promotes trust, respect, and kindness.
We also prioritize social-emotional development in our curriculum, helping children to develop the skills they need to navigate their emotions, build positive relationships, and resolve conflicts in a constructive way. By providing a safe and supportive environment, we support students to feel empowered to explore, learn, and grow to their full potential.
