A Letter from Our Founder

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Welcome to Camelback Holistic Preschool. Thank you for entrusting us with the care and education of your child. We take this role and responsibility very seriously and consider it a blessing to have this opportunity. We believe that every child is a unique and special gift and our goal is to provide a warm and caring environment that expresses joy and love as we provide a safe and nurturing atmosphere on a daily basis.

As the demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to ensure that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us – the preschool and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to guarantee success for all of our students. We believe in working together to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful.

Camelback Holistic Preschool promises to partner with you to promote the growth and development of your child. We are committed to providing dedicated, trained, and qualified staff members who are devoted to the care and well-being of the children and families we serve, so that we can maintain our exceptionally high standards of care for your child.

At Camelback Holistic Preschool we believe in providing an excellent and engaging early childhood education experience. Our curriculum is built on the belief that children will excel when given the opportunity to explore and create within their classroom environment. Our flexible, creative, and child-centered curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all children in the classroom.

The best way to understand our program is to visit and see it in action! We look forward to showing you around our facility and starting a relationship with you and your family. We strongly believe that family and teachers must form a close alliance for the benefit of each child in the school. We value the partnership we have with parents as we work together with you to care for, train, build character, and prepare children for life. We look forward to developing this partnership with you as we welcome you to Camelback Holistic Preschool!

We are always here to meet your needs and answer your questions. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time. We look forward to your involvement as we join together in teamwork for the continued success and growth of your child.
