Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our school reflects the philosophy that early childhood years are for fun and for a great deal of learning and discovery. It recognizes that growth is a sequential and orderly process through predictable stages of development. Our responsibility is to understand these developmental stages and to offer a program that will nurture and facilitate the growth of each child to his/her highest potential. Childhood is a journey, not a race. Our academic/social approach promotes academic skills within the context of the child€™s everyday activities and experiences. We encourage active exploration and inquiry. We value creativity and diversity. We nurture and expand the skills your child will need to face the future"
Excerpted from the preschool's website
