Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that all children go through predictable stages of growth physically, mentally, and emotionally. We also believe that children grow in various ways and at an individual pace. Our job is to recognize where each child is on this journey and design activities that complement individual growth and development.
