Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe education must be relevant, meaningful, and fun. It must inspire the natural curiosity of a child. Learning is accomplished by providing a safe environment that challenges each child to explore their world through play. The curriculum must incorporate children's interests. Finally, learning must address each child's individual path of development. We believe this is accomplished by integrating the following subject areas throughout the school day."
Excerpted from the preschool's website
