Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The mixed-age group has a child-centered curriculum using developmentally appropriate practices for early childhood. It focuses on the five aspects of a child's self (social, emotional, physical, creative and cognitive). Music is a big emphasis (children's rhymes, classic songs, folk music, musical intruments ). The outside play area is roomy and enchanting. There are fruit trees, a strawberry patch, gravel pathways, patios for trike riding, a wooden boat shaped sandbox in the shade. An anti-bias environment is provided for the children. The "Peace Table" is where they learn to listen to others and express their own thoughts to reach a resolution to conflicts with other children.
