Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led

From the Director:

Our objective is to provide an environment where each child is challenged to gain knowledge and develop their skills through pre-planned hands-on positive learning experiences. We focus on developing all of the developmental areas. We believe that social skills, self esteem and autonomy are vital to a successful entry into kindergarten. We offer a full kindergarten readiness program which includes hands-on small group instruction and interaction several times per week. Our curriculum" includes Handwriting Without Tears" and "Zoo-Phonics" which support development of writing, literacy and language skills. We collaborate with Kindergarten teachers in the school district and use the California Preschool Foundations/Standards to plan our curriculum.
