Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy includes providing a safe environment and quality child care. Our belief in the development of the whole child extends to all areas of our program. We incorporate several theories of learning and development which influence our program structure and teaching methodologies. We believe that play is the primary vehicle through which children learn. We offer children a variety of experiences and activities designed to give them opportunities for self-discovery, exploration and the feedom to create within a safe environment. We view the child as a whole, and plan for experiences that facilitate the child's physical, social, creative, emotional, and intellectual growth; and strive to have them experience success in whatever they attempt.
