Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

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

From the Director:

Developmental style.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

We have a higher staff to child ratio than most centers, so the children receive the attention they deserve in the group setting. We are able to take alittle more time with those who need it. Children who are excelling or ahead, we are able to give these children alittle more extra challenge if they want to excel more quickly.

We have back to school night in the fall, and we send home monthly letters about what is taking place at school.

If a parent wishes a conference with a parent, the parent is welcome to schedule one.
