Our Philosophy

Philosophy:
Marin Enrichment is dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment through activities that are designed to meet the needs of each of its participants. ME is structured to promote and enhance emotional, physical, intellectual and social, age appropriate development. We facilitate individual, personalized learning and encourage the development of student-initiated projects. Most importantly, we encourage personal growth within a climate of mutual respect and caring.

Program:
Marin Enrichment’s program serves two years nine months through 12 years of age. Our program is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of each individual child.

Marin Enrichment Preschool offers the fun and excitement of a unique experience that children will truly enjoy. Our curriculum encompasses literature, arts and crafts, music, science (including nature programs), movement, and sports. We emphasize an emergent curriculum with short and long-term projects based on the interest of the children.

Marin Enrichment Preschool maintains two classes in adjoining rooms. Four professionally trained teachers, in addition to our director, are present daily. This provides a teacher-to-student ratio of one-to-eight/nine that ensures your child will receive excellent personal attention. Preschool Children must be toilet trained to enter our program.

Marin Enrichment Afterschool curriculum encompasses the arts and crafts, music, drama, science (including nature programs), and computer activities. Sports, both intermural and individual, are also provided along with scheduled homework time.

A broad selection of projects and activities are available. Our students can select from these activities or freely choose to pursue their own. Marin Enrichment teachers are trained to encourage and inspire creative and spontaneous engagement. Unique ideas and the contributions from each child are valued, appreciated and affirmed. By design, our emergent curriculum works to facilitate flexibility and the comfortable sharing of thoughts and perceptions. As a result, students feel a sense of ownership and pride in their school experience. We want your children to look forward to coming to Marin Enrichment.
