Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our goal is to enhance development not only in the cognitive realm, but also in the social, emotional, physical. and intellectual realms. We encourage each child to grow at his or her own rate, in a totally supportive, loving environment. While we provide a well rounded academic curriculum for our children, we also believe that hugs and kisses are as important as the ABC's"
