Vision and mission

Our mission is to provide a great place for M Kids to grow and have fun under one roof with the flexibility and conveniences busy parents need to thrive, personally and professionally.

The Morningside Preschool of Performing Arts provides M Parents the most innovative solutions that erase barriers to acquiring quality child care when they really need it. The “M” School lives up to its reputation as “Every Parents BFF,” with honor. We create happy parents and happy children, too!

We strive to help each child develop socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually and to fulfill his or her potential in a structured yet nurturing environment. We are committed to maintaining a healthy balance between a non-competitive, supportive environment and a challenging experience through which children develop a strong sense of values and a positive image of themselves and of school. Our students are encouraged to be curious, independent and responsible, and to enjoy learning. We seek to give children the best possible preparation for their ongoing education, as well as for a rewarding life.

Philosophy

At M School, we think learning is a passionate experience. We stress the importance of the process of learning and help children come to the realization that often knowing how to find the answer or ask the question is more useful than the answer itself. We encourage children to try things for themselves, to explore and draw conclusions without fear of failure. We provide opportunities through which children come to value themselves, other people, ideas, skills, responsibilities and hard work.

 

We see children as individuals and as members of a group. We encourage them to develop in their own ways. We want children to know the satisfaction and excitement of their own creativity and expertise and to know the shared joy and inspiration of the Group. We expect children to appreciate the unique qualities and contributions of themselves and others. We strive for a diverse community of children and staff.

We view the classroom as a resource to be used by the children; a safe, well-planned environment in which constructive work and creative dramatic play can take place. M Teachers carefully choose meaningful materials for developing responsibility and age-appropriate work standards in our classrooms.

M School is a place where:

  • Children are respected;
  • Children are active participants in their learning;
  • Children develop the skills necessary to pursue their love of learning;
  • Children are expected to become responsible members of their Group and the School community;
  • Children learn to recognize and accept strengths and weaknesses in themselves and others;
  • Children become lifelong learners.
Diversity Mission

At The Morningside Preschool of Performing Arts, diversity is a positive aspect of our lives and an essential aspect of education.

We recognize and respect the fact that diversity exists in the languages we speak, the colors of our skin, our genders, ages, and sexual orientations, the traditions we observe, the configurations of our families, the financial and educational resources in our families and the special needs we may have.

We believe that our separate heritages, beliefs, and choices of expression help to define us as individuals and that our commitment to learning about one another and the larger world unites us as a community. Differences of all kinds are acknowledged and explored with respect.

Diversity Mission Statement
The Morningside Preschool of Performing Arts believes that healthy identity development is essential to the academic, social, and emotional growth of our students. As educators, we must create an environment in which all students feel safe, challenged, celebrated, and an integral part of The M School. It is our responsibility to engage all members of our school community in understanding multiple perspectives and participating in anti-bias work. Ultimately, our goal is to prepare students to become contributing members of a multicultural and interconnected society.

...Ashley is the sweetest most caring person. She sent me pictures while my son was there to put my mind at ease. She makes sure he’s fed, bathed and she kept on the same schedule I keep him on at home. She is that caretaker that will go above and beyond to make sure your kid is well. -Da’Shirelle Washington, M Parent Mother of One Year Old Boy
