About Us

Your Child Is in Great Hands


Philosophy & Curriculum

Cathedral Parkway Towers Pre-School (CPTP) promotes an environment where children become independent, confident, lifelong learners with a strong sense of self. We offer a positive, child-centered preschool experience that fosters a love of learning in a nurturing community. In each child, we strive to cultivate:

  • Autonomy


  • A sense of belonging


  • Respect for others


  • Enthusiasm for exploration


Our philosophy and curriculum has supported and protected the values that have strengthened CPTP for more than 40 years.

We offer a child-centered and developmentally appropriate program for two-through five year old children. CPTP has chosen to implement the play-based learning framework of The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool. Creative Curriculum® is a comprehensive system of learning based on research and knowledge regarding all areas of child-development-social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language.

The teachers use their own experiences, as well as the children’s interests, to adapt the curriculum to be unique to each CPTP class. Classroom observations and assessments become important tools for the teachers to communicate with parents.

Play allows children to learn about the world and themselves. As children play, they learn new skills, develop coping mechanisms, test new ideas, and master their bodies. Creative Curriculum® for Preschool provides extensive guidance for teachers in the content areas of literacy, math, science, social skills, and the arts. As children make choices about where to play in the classroom, they are learning a variety of skills. For example, building with blocks promotes material exploration, as well as spatial planning, symbolic representation, dramatic play, and social interactions. In the area of art, teachers emphasize the process rather than the finished product. As children use art materials, they are planning and carrying out a task and also using symbols to represent their ideas.

Our play-based curriculum offers children many opportunities for positive interactions with other children and adults. We treat each child with respect and reinforce his/her value as an individual and as a unique member of the CPTP community.
