Preschool Philosophies


NPN Tareema
Community Calendar

Choosing a preschool for your child can be an overwhelming task, especially in Chicago where there are so many options.  What does a Reggio-Emilia, Arts-Integrated, or Play Based curriculum mean?  With so many different preschool philosophies, how do you know which philosophy works for you and your family?


In this discussion you will learn about a variety of philosophies in early childhood education programs and the benefits of each philosophy in regards to character development in early childhood. In addition, our panelists will discuss some things to consider during the preschool search to help you prepare to choose a preschool for your family. 


There will be time for Q&A at the end!  Our esteemed school panel consists of:


Erin Woodhams, Director of Marketing, Admissions, and Communications, British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park

Meg Fitzgerald, Director of Early Childhood Education, Bennett Day School

Samantha Maxwell, Preschool Director, Bubbles Academy Arts-Integrated Preschool

Annessa Staab, Associate Director of Enrollment Management, Latin School of Chicago

Dr. Bill Pasola, Psy.D., Smart Love Preschool
