Philosophy:

Fairmont Private School of Fresno prides itself as a unique private school.  Our philosophy demonstrates the very finest early childhood practices.  Our teachers understand the importance of providing a developmental program that fosters the “whole child”.  We are committed to a developmental approach that focuses on the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth of each individual child, preschool through first grade. Our philosophy and core values are listed below:

Hands on Learning:

Learning is an active, not a passive experience. Learning involves children in active tasks, rather than mere memorization of facts.

Learning Styles:

Kids looking at Globe - Fairmont Private SchoolChildren differ in how they learn. No one method will accommodate all children. A variety of approaches are provided at each grade level.

Self Concept:

A healthy self concept is crucial to the child’s overall development. A child’s self concept determines how he or she copes with their environment. Opportunities are provided for children to grow individually and flourish socially.

Curiosity:

Toddler from Fairmont Private SchoolChildren are naturally curious about their environment. Learning takes place when materials are provided for exploration and discovery.

Intelligence:

Early experiences influence the child’s ability to learn. Each classroom provides age appropriate activities to foster the child’s intellect.

Problem Solving:

Children learn to solve their own problems through social interaction, taking responsibility for their decisions, and through games and building activities.

Learning is a Process:

How a child performs a task reveals his or her developmental level and learning style. A variety of experiences involving alternative approaches and processes are provided at each grade level.

Home-School Communication:

The partnership between family and school is the foundation for your child’s success. We encourage parents to meet with us to discuss school concerns.

Diversity:

We embrace and celebrate individual differences. We honor and commemorate each child’s heritage and uniqueness. We are excited you have joined our Fairmont community. We look forward to building relationships and working together with each family. We anticipate a meaningful year of learning and growing for your child.
