Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that every child is gifted in unique ways. There is no such thing as an untalented child. As growth is uneven, strenth can be utilized to develop slower areas of expression.
Children learn to be designers of their own lives and leaders of others through choices and the consideration of consequences and alternatives.
Children have aninherent capacity to respond with sensitivity and responsibility to themselves,to others and to their environment,including the materials they use.This capacity is brought out by attention to these values.
Children are eager to discover who they are and what their potentials are. They need to be guided to express what is inside. Each child is individual in perception and needs to be listened to with respect and recongnized as a person of value. How the child feels about self is a most important daily value. This concept of self moves out into the world as the joy of discovery,the impetus to grow.
Children have minds;they can recognize what is impottant;they like to work,to strech and grow. A child who maintains a love of learning has a lifetime basis for success in whatever path is chosen,and reaps rewarding self benefits in self esteem and delight in life.
Children like to have fun-they are fun! They eant to be happy and enjoy and appreciate life each day.feelingloved and loving. Children reach out in social comraderie to other children and adults. They are capable of looking at social situation to discover better ways of interacting.
Children have a natural sense of their spiritual relationship with all life. Their sense of peace and union can be enhanced by attention to their inner feelings. They love to be in harmony with everyone and evering around them. They can learn to understand others and practice skills that will maintain that sense of harmony with all.
Creative life school is dedicated to the education,growth,expression and well being of the whole child. We share with you,as parents,the purpose and responsibility for knowing and maximizind your childs potential in a loving atmosphere. "
