The Mission of the Lab School at SUNY Orange is to provide educational
excellence to young children, college students and Orange County families.
We provide your child with a happy, healthy, supportive, and stimulating
learning environment. In each classroom, the curriculum is designed so that
children may develop to their highest potential socially, emotionally,
intellectually, and physically.
· Is based on
recognized and documented developmental principles, understanding that children
learn best by being actively engaged in their learning. Learning is a process
of discovery and exploration and play has a central role in this process. Play
experiences provide a basis for ongoing development, realizing that each develops
at his or her own individual rate.
· Recognizes that the
teacher’s role is critical in supporting and facilitating children’s play and
learning. Teachers construct the indoor and outdoor environment allowing
children to fully explore and interact based on their individual developmental
level. Teachers work as a professional team, understanding that children need
to be met with dignity by providing positive guidance strategies helping them
make appropriate choices, and to socialize with other children. It is
understood that professionalism is a key ingredient in keeping our schools at
the highest quality.
· Promotes family
partnerships and active involvement based on understanding, trust, and mutual
respect. Families and teaching staff work together to make the transition from
home to school a pleasant experience for the child and the family.
· Encompasses working
alongside the Education Department by fulfilling the mission of providing
future teachers a model for educational excellence. In addition, the Lab School
is a place where any department can utilize our facilities to supplement its
coursework in early childhood.
