Holladay Preschool Philosophy and Mission Statement:
The philosophy of Holladay Preschool is centered on the child. It places a major emphasis on helping each child develop a positive self-image. Social, emotional, physical and intellectual development are all equally important. The program fosters independence and personal initiative. It is flexible and designed to meet the needs of the individual child within the framework of the group. It is creative, with an emphasis on exploration and discovery. Special attention is given to the process of play without adult criteria imposed. Within each class, a varied and stimulating program is planned, but may be altered as special interests and events spontaneously occur.
Relationship of Holladay Preschool and Holladay United Church of Christ:
Holladay Preschool ("The Preschool") was one of the first branches of ministry established by Holladay United Church of Christ (“Holladay Church”) at its inception. The Preschool is legally a part of Holladay Church, but operates as a separate unit with its own board, budget and bank accounts. The Preschool is a service to the total community. Religion can be expressed in terms of a loving relationship between teacher and child. The Preschool supports the inclusion of children and parents of varied backgrounds and cultures. As Christianity is a relationship of love and trust between God and God's people, so Holladay Church has tried to relate to each of its various parts in a covenantal way.
