Why Smart Start Preschool?

At Smart Start Preschool, children most often:

  • Lead…rather than follow the teacher.

  • Create…rather than duplicate.

  • Move…rather than wait. Initiate…rather than imitate.

  • Raise questions…rather than answer the teacher’s questions.

  • Solve their own problems…rather than the teacher’s problems.

  • Make art…rather than do crafts.

  • Make books…rather than fill in workbooks.

  • Decide…rather than submit.

  • Choose wisely…rather than being told.

  • Try again…rather than fail.
