General School Mission

"The school is designed to create an environment of love and trust where the children can grow emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially. The school will provide a safe, secure nurturing atmosphere where the child can develop a positive sense of self-worth at his own pace.

The school will provide exciting choices and free play where the child can explore and experience the joy of learning. The child will be able to develop socially by interacting with his peers, and be actively involved in the process of sharing, cooperation and communication.

The child will be academically prepared and challenged to reach his potential.
