From the Director:

Through exciting and varied daily activities that stimulate the child, our teachers provide an environment that encourages participation in learning. We strive to enrich each child's social, emotional and academic levels so that the child's self-esteem, confidence and independence matures and they develop a love of learning.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Each age group has a curriculum designed specifically for that stage of development. All levels include arts & crafts, science, music, body movement, cooking and age appropriate academics. Our monthly themes include units on ethics and family values. Regardless of the age group, we are able to bring in higher level learning materials if a child is ready. At the same time, there is no pressure to "keep up" with the class. Each child can move at his/her own rate.

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Through monthly newsletters and take-home evaluations, parents are kept abreast of the activities at school and the progress of their child. In addition, almost daily pictures are posted on facebook so that parents can see their children at play.

Parents Say They are Encouraged to:

  • Are able to visit the school anytime we want
  • Go on field trips
  • Volunteer in the classroom
  • Receive newsletters

Modes of Communication

  • Notes
  • Phone Calls
  • Email
  • Special Meetings
  • Drop-Off
  • Pick-Up
  • Regular newsletter/printed updates circulated to the whole school


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Extra staff dedicated to handle separation
  • Parents in classroom early on

Handling Separation: From the Director

We encourage visits prior to the first day of school so that the child has a chance to acclimate to the school with the parent still nearby. We also have an orientation meet and greet for one hour prior to the first day of school with both the child and the parent present.
