Welcome to Fort Mill Preparatory Cooperative Preschool!
Why we are unique
Ms. Christine, the Executive Director, and Ms. Jenette, the School Director, take an active role in the day-to-day operation of the school. At FMPCP, we provide your child with a “home away from home” setting in hopes that your child will feel relaxed and content in his/her surroundings. Each child is personally known by each teacher, which makes for a family feeling and extra safety.
With our low ratios, we are able to provide individual attention along with a small group social setting.Our ratios are MUCH lower than State Requirements. Our small class sizes enable us to practice our philosophies each day! Children that are a part of a lower ratio, feel secure; giving them confidence to experience and try new things! Teachers feel relaxed and enjoy having the opportunity to teach. FMPCP is dedicated to maintaining our class sizes, as this is where the quality of our program begins.
Mission & Vision
We believe that the purpose of Fort Mill Preparatory Cooperative Preschool is to provide a positive educational atmosphere for learning, so that students may experience the joy of learning and may become fulfilled, aware, and caring human beings, capable of using their skills successfully to continue advancement in these areas.
We believe that the learning experiences offered by FMPCP should be adequate to satisfy the curiosity and intellectual growth of all who attend. We see each child as an individual and therefore the organizational arrangement for instruction and teaching methods must be varied. We view each student as a unique person. We believe that his/her physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and moral development is continuous and ever expanding. In addition, we recognize each student as having basic needs.
This program is viewed as an integral part of the child’s overall school experience. It is designed to provide opportunities for children to learn through various experiences and in a socially centered environment. This program recognizes the unique needs of each child and will provide learning opportunities according to these varied needs, abilities, and interests. This program will strive to prepare each student to function successfully in a scholastic, social, and individual way.
FMPCP is a program for the “Whole Child.” The responsibility is to provide a service to the community for the highest type of early education through:
1. A well-organized program that meets physical, emotional, social, and intellectual needs.
2. A loving home like/classroom environment.
3. Fully utilizing the physical facilities of Fort Mill, for the benefit of the FMPCP community.
4. For children to enjoy group experiences outside the home.
5. Loving encouragement and guidance of children toward independence, responsibility, and social consciousness.
6. A positive approach to learning.
