Day in the Life

General School Mission

We believe in developmental learning where learning is encouraged through play. Within the programs daily schedule each child has the opportunity to create, explore, and learn problem solving and critical thinking skills through self-initiated and teacher directed activities.

We provide developmentally appropriate programs that focus on the process of learning and help children enjoy successful experiences. We encourage not just learning, but the love of learning.

Our staff provides and individualized program which promotes and nurtures the emotional, physical, social and cognitive development of your child and in the same time responds to the needs of families.

We believe in positive methods of disciple. We establish consistent and appropriate limits to help children function in their world. Our programs are designed to develop in children a sense of independence and responsibility. We strive to strengthen each child's own cultural identity, while instilling a respect for others.

We believe that a strong home-school relationship serves as a foundation to learning and that parents, children and teachers benefit from learning and working together. We encourage daily communication between parents and preschool staff. Our doors are open to parents at all times.

Our organization values people: the children in our care, their parents, and our teachers. We continually work to earn the trust placed in us. We strive each day to be the best provider of early childhood educational services we possibly can.

Our program offers an abundance of opportunities to learn, develop and thrive. We develop an appreciation for Education.

A Typical Day

Your Preschooler's Day

Our Preschool program provides a rich classroom environment where children are encouraged to explore and are challenged to learn. Your preschooler will make new friends and develop self-confidence as he or she strengthens cognitive skills. Watch your child demonstrate new learning, and flourish in our stimulating classroom environment-while having fun!

Language and Literacy

We introduce high-quality children's literature to promote a love of reading. Our daily activities develop reading and writing skills and introduce important literacy concepts.

Math Skills

Children are introduced to the rich world of numbers, including sorting, grouping, and counting, as well as more advanced math skills.

Social Skills

Group time allows your child to talk, listen, share, take turns, cooperate, interact with friends, and learn the value of giving and receiving feedback. Positive reinforcement helps children realize the importance of being a team player and refines skills needed to flourish in a classroom environment.

Creativity and Imagination

Dramatic play, music and art activities give every child the opportunity to showcase their abundant creativity. We encourage all children to express their ideas in order to help build confidence, independence and imagination.

Physical Development

Our experienced teachers work with children to develop their large motor skills-running, jumping, throwing and kicking-and practice coordination skills, such as writing, drawing, cutting and other activities.
