At Ralph Moody,

Our mission:

Create a foundation that empowers, educates and honors compassionate children.

Our vision:

Ralph Moody will provide an inclusive and cohesive community where students:

  • feel valued and safe
  • engage in the 4Cs: critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and innovation, communication and collaboration
  • evolve into thriving life long learners
  • solve problems positively
  • take ownership of mistakes and learn from opportunities
  • develop leadership skills
  • develop proficiency in technology to enhance learning
  • contribute to a joyous and uplifting culture

In this program, we promote the development of children’s self-esteem and social competence through a variety of age appropriate activities in a safe and nurturing environment. Our staff will help prepare children for Kindergarten by providing meaningful experiences in order to enhance optimal growth in social, emotional, cognitive, language, and physical skills. We hope to provide a seamless learning experience for children who will attend Ralph Moody Elementary.

To be consistent with all other LPS preschools, we use Creative Curriculum in our classroom. The Creative Curriculum is a teaching strategy that helps children learn to be creative and positive thinkers. Hiking Tikes preschool offer hands on exploration that builds lifelong critical thinking skills, and fosters confidence. Creative Curriculum provides teachers with tools to engage and support each type of learner, while addressing all important areas of learning. We also have added the Social Emotional Curriculum of Dinosaur School using a partnership with The Incredible Years. This program empowers the children with the tools they need to succeed in social settings, problem solving, conflict resolution as well as sharing and embracing their emotions.
