Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our goal is to provide a fully integrated program that fosters a child's
social and emotional growth, as well as their physical and mental
development. Our sequential learning program was developed with the
goal of preparing children for kindergarten and beyond.
The purpose of the school is to guide each child in the aforementioned
areas. All areas are given equal attention when preparing a curriculum to
fit the needs of children. A child's self-expression, creativity and
analytical thinking are worked out in learning through play. The
teacher's role is to guide the child, while helping the child to build a
positive self-image. We strive to develop habits of independence,
encourage children to meet their own needs, and provide opportunities
for children to build self-awareness and self-assurance."
