Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Rose Blossom Nursery School sees the development of the child as a well-integrated human being, and as such, we recognize the need for a safe, accepting and nurturing environment. Here a child is given the time and support needed to develop social skills, build friendships and develop creativity.

We believe that the desire to learn is innate and that our role as teachers is to carefully observe each child to determine specific needs and then provide appropriate learning activities. We also offer the children an opportunity to develop academic skills, individualizing curriculum as needed. Our challenge as adults is to discover each child's gifts and help facilitate their development.
