Welcome to Little Giants Preschool!

Our Mission: "Collaborate to Educate"

Belief Statements:

  • Play is the way children learn naturally. It helps them to develop in all areas.
  • An appropriate early childhood learning environment is safe and includes many hands-on experiences that invite children to investigate, learn, and share.
  • Teachers must use a wide range of teaching strategies, including both child-initiated learning and teacher-directed activities.
  • All children, including those with special needs and second language learners, can benefit from a developmentally appropriate preschool program.
  • When families are an integral part of a school program, children's self esteem and achievement are enhanced.
  • Social/emotional readiness is critical to children's success in school and in life and should therefore, be a main focus of the preschool program.
  • A print-rich environment that allows children to practice literacy skills in real-life experiences, along with purposeful teaching of key concepts, is the foundation of literacy learning in preschool.

Proceeds help fund the many ways MHSAA helps to support Marion High School and Marion Community Schools. (They've given tens of thousands of dollars directly to school and extracurricular programs over the past few years, and they've raised more than $200,000 for the Giant Dreams Endowments at the Community Foundation of Grant County to help provide for the needs of Giants today and long into the future!)

If you can't come to the shop, you can place orders for some of the gear online: www.mhsalum.com/giants-spirit-shop. (NOTE: Delivery may not be guaranteed before Christmas. Please contact the individual printers for more information.)
