Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

From the Director:

We have a structured program that incorporates children also being allowed to contribute and choose in many areas.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Children fare best when addressed at the level of their individual interest, skill and understanding. Each child is different. When this is done correctly, they develop pride in their skills and who they are.

Factors of ahead or behind aren't used as a comparison against other children. What is important is that a child is excelling upwards.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"To provide a safe, pleasant haven for children to put their sites towards growing-up and aspiring to learn of and possess, through mimicry and education, the skills and good qualities they see in the adults around them.
We provide a safe, caring environment for your child. This is coupled with a program to help them learn skills in the areas of communication, music, manners, physical coordination, dexterity, following directions, working with a group, and generally learning more about the environment around them. As they are ready -- learning to read, print and basic math will be included in their day.
