Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

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

From the Director:

Our philosophy is based on the premise that each child is unique individual basically endowed with a wide range of potentials and talents. That when this child is provided with a safe, healthy, caring and nurturing environment and given the necessary exposure and experience about the basic, simple and natural things in life, we believe that this child is capable of developing into a full blown matured, caring, respectful and responsible individual. We believe that as a child care provider we have a big responsibility to make a change not only to disprove that we are "just babysitters" but to make the world know that ours is a profound profession geared towards shaping a child's mind and total personality formation to enable to prepare the child to face that many challenges in life that awaits him/her in the world. ​ Like a cherub, meaning little angel, we want our children to have wings to be able to fly with their imagination and enhance their creativity by cultivating their curiosity, because in their innocence they have the freedom to wonder and their field of learning is limitless and the bounds of their environment goes beyond the school grounds.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our mission is to provide quality child care for our community by providing a nurturing, caring, and safe environment for learning.

A Typical Day

Every morning, we conduct "circle time," where we learn cognitive concepts such as math, pre-literacy, science through fun songs and activities. We also take this time to learn about our children's feelings.

Separation

Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Extra staff dedicated to handle separation
  • Parents in classroom early on

Handling Separation: From the Director

Separation anxiety is normal for children and is a sign of parent-child attachment. We handle separation on a case by case basis, depending on the child and parent's needs.
