    Program Mission
    Kings County Office of Education State Preschools are committed to offer an environment where each child can reach his or her full potential and acquire the desire to become a life-long learner through quality, early learning experiences.

    Program Philosophy & Goals:
    A well-trained staff and an environment which is both stimulating and challenging, will afford all children the opportunity to explore, create and develop their cognitive, physical, social-emotional, and self-regulation skills. Through a balance of quality teacher directed and self-initiated activities, children will develop problem-solving techniques as well as critical thinking skills as they build a positive self-image.

    Preschool Goals:

    • Children are personally, physically, and socially competent.
    • Children are effective learners.
    • Children show physical and social competence.
    • Children are safe and healthy.
    • Families support their child’s learning and development.
    • Families achieve their goals.
