Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Children are very special people who are making wonderful discoveries about themselves and their world. Given a safe, caring and accepting environment with an enriching curriculum, children will be able to learn and grow. Our purpose is to provide such an environment. In addition, we recognize the importance of assisting in the development of the whole child. Therefore, equal consideration is given to the child's social, emotional, physical, cognitive and creative development. We encourage children to think for themselves, express their individuality and develop a high self-esteem.
