Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Montessori, Reggio-Emilia

From the Director:

We serve all children in a way that meets their individual learning style and level of development. Our curriculum is ever growing and changing to adapt to the current needs and interests of the whole group. While we do not subscribe to one specific philosophy, our approach is inspired by several different theories including Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and High Scope.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

The home-school connection is a large part of our program. We can always make time for a brief exchange if needed at pick-up or drop-off. We have a daily board to keep parents updated on what we do each day. We also hold yearly conferences to keep everybody up to date on development and key goals for each child. We have an open-door policy and we are happy to exchange e-mails or schedule a conference at any time.

Separation

Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Abbreviated schedule at start of school year

Handling Separation: From the Director

Entering preschool is a big step for the entire family. It's important that children feel welcome and safe at their new school. Parents should feel comfortable at drop off and know that their child will be comforted and assisted as needed until they are ready to engage. We have a drop off routine to ease the transition. Above all, we are flexible to the needs of each individual child and family.
