Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our program is based on our authentic family care, in which the kids and the parents feel like if they were in their own home and at the same time we teach them appropriate practices for their age and for the kids development, so each one can develop at their own level in a well organized and secure environment. The program provides a variety of activities to enhance security, self-exploration and autonomy. Also promotes self-esteem through the daily routine encouraging children to choose their own areas.

We have designed our website so that you can learn about our curriculum and policies as well as understand what can be expected of you. It will also answer questions regarding daily activities, meals, environment and policy procedures, etc
