Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Shadow Rock is a place where each child is unique and unrepeatable.

We believe:

That children learn by being in the midst of experience

In freedom and in limits and helping each child understand his or her role

In extending each child's outlook past home, family and city

In developing a sense of independence and responsibility

Each child needs to know that what they do affects the world and what the world does affects each of them

That fostering inquiry, problem-solving and decision making leads to future school success

Play is a preschoolers' mode of learning

That children construct reality based on prior learning
