Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"To offer a high quality preschool program using the best practices of early childhood education providing a balanced curriculum including both self-directed and teacher-directed activities in a small group class.
We believe that positive comments and good examples produce a strong sense of self worth. Children learn by imitation and modeling. Through this, they will not only learn what is appropriate socially, but also build good listening skills, follow directions, make his/her own decisions, problem solve and express creatively.
