The mission of Hugging Tree Nature Preschool is to meet the needs of the whole child, while nurturing a lifelong appreciation of the natural world.
* All children can learn.
* All children learn in their own way.
* Children grow and develop at different rates.
* Children learn best when the subject is relevant to them.
* Children need to be children. They need plenty of time to play, and plenty of practice and opportunities to work on social skills in a safe environment.
* Helping children develop a positive self image and become socially competent is the best foundation for their future.
