Philosophy & Approach

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Each child experiences life differently. We learn the child and lead the child in learning varying modes of expression and decesion making skills. Consistancy, communication, respect and reintergration is key to the essence ofthe individual, the group and our community.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Each morning and evening offers the oppurtunity for exchange and communication. Caregiving is a personal relationship and I have always felt welcomed and encouraged casual off hour calls relating to any subject of discussion.
