Character Education

Preschool Character Education

At Tower Hill, we believe that character is comprised of those values that lead to self-respect, dignity, reverence and the concern for the lives of others. We know that the development of character emerges in early childhood and continues to develop throughout one’s lifetime.
Character dducation is a fundamental part of the curriculum for our youngest learners. The students are introduced to age-appropriate character traits that are important to their personal growth as well as their growth within the community. 

Being mindful of the social and emotional development of young children, we are explicit in how we model and teach character education, utilizing fun, creative ideas and strategies that match the students’ emerging cognitive capacities.
