Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"It is our philosophy that parents are the primary caregiver to their children. The school provides a complimentary extension to that parental care. We believe young children thrive when they feel loved, safe, and respected by the adults who care for them. By providing an environment that is stimulating, rich, and carefully planned, the children are exposed to more than learning colors, shapes, and rote memorization.

We encourage active play, free expression and problem solving.
Children need to explore their thoughts, use their imagination, and make things happen. Our goal for the children is for them to like themselves, gain a feeling of self-worth, enjoy socializing with others, and feel empathy and understand others. It is through this involvement with their surroundings that children will experience the importance of language, science, and friendship..
