Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The school is developmentally oriented following a strong academic curriculum with primary emphasis on the individual child. Our classrooms are center-based with new activities planned regularly. Rooms are designed so that children have numerous choices within an environment of maximum learning. Teachers act primarily as facilitators encouraging a strong partnership between the home and school.

What We Believe:
Each child has a talent and potential.

Each child learns through play - play is children's work.

Each child should be given endless opportunities:
to be curious.

to be free.

to be aware of the world around them.

to develop a new appreciation in art, music, science, drama, languages, and numbers.

to discover one's sense of self-worth.

We take pride in the quality of our staff, they are among the finest and most skilled in the profession. They are selected, not only for their educational background and work experience, but also for their personal qualities of warmth, empathy, and ability to relate positively to others. We are proud that some of our staff is approaching 20 years of service at the school. This provides for consistency and a feeling of security among children particularly at this young of age.
