Program Philosophy

Ari Guiragos Minassian Armenian Preschool believes in nurturing a child’s emotional and social growth as a foundation for intellectual development. We emphasize the following four developmental domains: cognitive, social, emotional, and physical.

The Preschool teachers are dedicated to providing our students with love and individual care while forming a strong partnership with parents.

At Ari Guiragos Minassian Preschool, each child is:

  •  appreciated and respected for his/her uniqueness
  •  provided a warm, safe, and nurturing environment
  • granted ample age-appropriate learning opportunities for a smooth transition to Kindergarten
