For Over Fifty Years, Charlottesville Families Have Trusted St. Mark Lutheran Preschool To Provide Quality Early Childhood Education In A Safe, Loving Environment.
Our program is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy of early childhood development. We provide a safe, playful environment where our children are free to discover, explore, question, and express their own experiences, predictions, and evaluations in a myriad of “languages”. Offering a variety of materials, tools, concepts, and equipment, we help them to see alternatives, problem solve and make their own decisions. We are committed to observing and listening, and then reacting to and validating their ideas with respect, imagination, and tenderness.
