Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

"Schedules are flexible, depending upon weather, interests, etc. However, it is our belief that children respond best to familiar routine; we recognize that every minute of the day is a learning process, no matter what the child is involved in doing. It is our goal to have warm child-teacher relationships with daily activities geared to promoting the total growth of the child." Extracted from
