Goshen Friends Preschool is based on Quaker values that encourage the growth of the whole child by addressing a child’s interests, strengths, and needs through a developmentally appropriate and responsive curriculum. Purposeful, child-centered classrooms enhance cognitive, physical, social, emotional, aesthetic, and spiritual growth. Play and concrete experiences encourage discovery, experimentation, interaction, choice, and conversation. These classrooms create a foundation that fosters enthusiasm for learning, independence, cooperation, responsibility, freedom of expression, and appreciation of differences.

Goshen teachers are not married to “Teaching to the Test.” They tailor their teaching style to the needs of each class. The freedom to be flexible allows each teacher to discover and address the strengths and weaknesses of each boy and girl.
