The educational philosophy at Fort Hunt Preschool is centered on learning through play.
Learning is a natural and ongoing phenomenon, which emerges as we interact with and respond to our environment.
We are a community of families made up of parents and educators who believe that children learn best in a safe, nurturing environment, supported by a cooperative partnership of parents and teachers. FHP's approach to early childhood education draws on the strengths of a variety of educational philosophies to provide each child with developmentally appropriate opportunities for social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Through personal experience, discovery, and play (the "work" of childhood), we cultivate children's natural curiosity and foster respect for self, others, and the natural world.
