Westover Baptist Preschool's program is designed to encourage and support children’s social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual development.
“Play” is the integral learning tool at Westover. During play, children are constructing their understanding of the world and themselves. It is their way of working and learning. Children acquire many skills through play. They try new roles, solve problems, learn how to make sense of their environment, and practice social skills.
Children are involved in daily learning activities explored through small and large groups. Children are exposed to activities that encourage a positive self-image, independence, and develop skills that will always benefit them in later learning.

In our child-centered setting, children are involved in choosing/planning activities and are encouraged to try new things.
