Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Philosophy
The first five years of a child's life are important! It is critical for parents to take an active role to ensure a lifelong thirst for learning.

At Palos Verdes Hills Nursery School:
the child and parent both grow and foster new friendships in an enriching environment.
we emphasize the development of self-confidence.
children learn to express their feelings.
children learn to make their own decisions within safe, comfortable limits.
A relaxed, non-competitive and loving atmosphere is an important part of our "curriculum". Individual differences are recognized and each child is helped to progress at his or her own rate in all areas of development. We maintain at least a 4 to 1 ratio (child/adult) to insure the safety of children and to establish a one-to-one relationship as often as possible.
