Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"While we actively monitor and support the growth and development of all facets of the children's personalities, our primary focus is on their emotional and social well-being. Underlying our program is the genuine concern that our children be able to know themselves, feel good about being who they are, and grow to share this with others. We seek to empower our children to become happy, well-adjusted, and self-actualized individuals.
Joining the Heffalump community provides parents with the opportunity to be directly involved in their child's early education experience and to share this with other parents. It is a rewarding endeavor, and also importantly, one in which all of us who participate have fun. "
