Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy is based on respect for the uniqueness and dignity of each individual. We are fortunate to be located in a spacious, rustic environment where children can create their own world with a minimum of adult intervention.
This approach to preschool allows children the freedom to experience their own creativity, to explore their world and to develop their inner strengths and resources. Mutual respect and cooperation are encouraged, as well as socializing, problem-solving and, of course, fun. The role of the adult in this environment is to assist and guide with minimum intervention rather than direct or entertain.
It is our belief that children who experience this philosophy delight in their sense of independence and accomplishment, accept responsibility and like and respect themselves and others. These children will continue to explore and discover with confidence and enthusiasm and have a strong foundation for further academic success."
