Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We firmly believe in learning through play combined with a teacher directed activities. Self confidence, respect for others, and the ability to form relationships are the tools necessary for success at the Kindergarten level.

A Typical Day

We start each day with an Art project. Then we have snack, group time(yoga,sharing,music,spanish,topical discussions etc) and then outside to play! Lunch is at 11:45 followed by a well needed nap from 1 to 3pm. The kids wake up to an afternoon snack and then free play until pickup.
