Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Our learning approach is developmental and children are encouraged to work at their own pace. Each student in our program receives the help and encouragement he or she needs.
If a student needs additional help we provide it. If a student is ahead of the group we provide motivation to keep going at his or her pace (additional work or tasks to keep the interest going). If a student is different we try to find out what he or she needs and do our best to offer it or to offer referrals for needs the program cannot meet.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

A monthly calendar and a quarterly newsletter is provided to all parents.
Daily communication between teachers and parents is
We also communicate with parents through parent meetings,
children's progress reports and we provide referrals to resources and activities within the community as needed.


Separation is Handled through:

  • Small group sessions
  • Extra staff dedicated to handle separation
  • Parents in classroom early on

Handling Separation: From the Director

We are a relatively small school with low teacher/child ratios.
Our facility is actually a converted house and it has a
"home like" feeling.
Our teachers are caring and dedicated and they are sensitive to the needs of the individual students.
