Our Staff is made up of certified teachers, assistants and directors. In addition to the required certification and course work, ongoing professional training is provided to our staff which focuses on preschool age academics, how to implement individualized teaching techniques within a group setting, and positive behavioral approaches that are utilized in the classroom to build independence, self confidence, and much more. Our program allows each teacher to focus on their teaching style to meet the individual needs of each student. We believe that there is not one teaching method that is definitive. A combination of styles lends itself to the versatility we look for in our staff.

Kindergarten:

Our kindergarten program is designed to prepare our students for their academic futures. Taught by a credentialed teacher, Foothill’s Kindergarten is enriched with same whole child approach as our preschool program. Children will spend their day learning through hands on and academic activities individualized for optimum growth and learning. Cooking, Science, Gardening, Outings, Yoga and Music are integrated throughout the day. The Spaulding “Writing Road to Reading” is just one of the language arts programs that enhance our kindergarten curriculum. We also utilize the Saxon Math for Kindergarten and First Grade as part of our curriculum.

Our Philosophy

At Foothill Preschools and Kindergarten it is our goal to develop each child's confidence, independence and joy of learning through play based curriculum that focuses on building language and social skills.

Our mission is to nurture your child so that they achieve their potential as well-rounded, secure, confident individuals with a strong motivation to learn. Learning strategies that are helpful for one child may be useless or counterproductive for another. That is why at Foothill we work to develop a program that supports each child’s individuality.

We take pride and care in creating and implementing our programs. Together with our families we promote the growth in each stage of their child’s development. All preschool age children demonstrate strong learning preferences as well as areas of relative weakness.

Every child is unique and special. Our philosophy here at Foothill is to provide a nurturing and warm environment that supports children’s growth through exploration. We incorporate elements of numerous curriculums, focusing on a holistic approach so that every child is inspired to learn.

  • Curriculum modified to child's individual learning style
  • Exceptionally qualified teachers & staff.
  • Excellent child-teacher ratio.
