Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Great Adventures in Learning Center holds to the philosophy that all facets of a child's personality (social, intellectual, spiritual, physical and emotional) are inter-related, and school must provide the opportunity for the natural unfolding of the mind, personality and capacities of the child. Individualized attention and program development are keynote in a wholesome atmosphere of happiness, love, acceptance, encouragement and freedom WITH GUIDANCE. The prepared environment equips the child with knowledge and skills that serve as tools by which he may utilize, control and express his individuality in fields of his choice.

Our goal is to raise performance thinkers, not spectators which must constantly be entertained from without or mere echoes of the adults which surround them. We esteem both accumulated knowledge and creative expression through a variety of unique experiences in all curriculum areas as we teach them to see in full color, hear in full tone, and sense at the optimum with their organs of smell, taste, touch, rhythmic, kinesthetic (weight & motion), thermal (temperature) and organic sensation (self esteem, internal/emotions). We want them to observe and experience life to the fullest and reach their own "Creative Heights"!
