Describe the Tiny Planet Preschool.
Tiny Planet Preschool is a part of Graven International Group, Inc., an educational company with more than 33 years of experience and a winner of numerous International Awards of Excellence in education. Tiny Planet was established in the United States as an extension of the organization whose priority is to continue to spread its philosophy of modern education with traditional values.
What is Tiny Planet’s educational philosophy?
Tiny Planet believes in a multi-disciplinary approach to learning to promote a child who has strengths in all disciplines. Our bilingual curriculum enforces the importance of dual language education, and we are proud of being the Best of Weston winner (2016 through 2020) for Best Bilingual Preschool and Best Preschool overall in 2021.
Please explain your curriculum.
Our teachers and students benefit from the use of a creative curriculum inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy. This allows the children to make their own inferences and the ability to explore their own outcomes.
Along with our cognitive Creative Curriculum, we have included our own HEART AND MIND section which focuses on teaching our children the importance of kindness, empathy, manners, and love, among other important areas we feel are necessary to provide a well-rounded education.
What differentiates Tiny Planet from other preschools?
At Tiny Planet, we offer our students and parents a variety of different enrichment programs such as swimming classes, Spanish, yoga, and many more sports enrichment classes. Our facility includes a swimming pool and full-functioning gymnasium.
Our school is also equipped with iMac’s, Apple Smart TV, as well as iPads in the classrooms which teachers use as educational tools and homework help for our afterschool program.
What is special about your staff?
Tiny Planet teachers are dedicated, passionate and, most importantly, focused on stimulating the strengths of each student. They are all bilingual professional educators that meet or exceed the criteria set by the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF). Every teacher is CPR and First Aid Certified with background checks cleared on both a local and national level.
What are the ages of the children you serve?
Our preschool serves children from six weeks to five years of age. We offer an aftercare program for children ages six to eight years.
Please tell us more about your aftercare program.
