Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

" We serve the community by guiding and supporting children as they discover, create, work and play together. In so doing, we kindly and lovingly promote dignity and respect for all while aiding the development of the whole child: social, mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. Our program is inclusive and culturally diverse.
