From the Director:
"Educational Philosophy 1. To foster joy and love in the child's heart for learning and school. 2. To recognize play as our main device in teaching our children, because it is an essential part of growth and expression. 3. To recognize each child as an individual and encourage cooperation and sharing. 4. To encourage problem solving and patience through independent thinking. 5. To provide non-sexist and multi-ethnic images and literature, and to avoid stereotyped judgments and aspirations. 6. To encourage love and respect for other life forms that shares our earth. 7. To encourage self-esteem for a strong, confident, and wise child. 8. To work in partnership with the child's parents to promote the growth and development of the child."
