Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe children’s early experiences enrich and stimulate future development and growth. Children deserve to be treated as individuals in a healthy environment that welcomes exploration, imagination, and individual growth. We respect each child’s need for a loving and secure environment that offers stimulation, acceptance and warmth, and includes academic growth."
Excerpted from the preschool's website
