• Our Philosophy

    The Matteson School District 162 / Richton Square philosophy, which is the foundation for the operation and implementation of our preschool programming, is as follows:

    • We will support all children and their families in their efforts toward independent functioning, positive achievements and personal accomplishments.
    • We will provide services without discrimination.
    • Teachers and parents/guardians will work together to enhance the children’s educational progress and development.
    • The curriculum will be developmentally appropriate.
    • Highly qualified teachers and staff will maintain quality programming through continued staff development.
    • We will provide services to children and their families that are responsive to individual culture, values, belief systems and the future implications of individual needs.
