Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Every individual is unique. In planning our educational program, we always consider individuality as we know your child develops best when his uniqueness is respected. Our philosophy program provides your child with a continuing variety of sensory motor activities and extends the range of his experiences.
Children grow in self-confidence as they gain skill in using their bodies, as they improve the keenness of their perceptions, as they become more competent in using language, and as they succeed in making friends with other children their own age. Out of these relationships with equals may come some of the deepest satisfactions in life. One of the most values for your child in being a member of a group of equals, is the chance to build a more realistic concept of him/her self as a person apart from him/her membership in the family group.
We understand the sequences in which children's skills develop. We can identify transition points in learning and can, therefore, give effective help to your child through each successive stage.
