Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our developmentally based program incorporates a flexible balance of structured and unstructured activities designed to enhance self- direction in each child. Our multi-age and cultural setting encourages children to learn from each other. We believe that children must be active participants in their own learning experiences. Teachers exemplify a positive approach to a child's attitude and enthusiasm. Teachers guide children in making connections from classroom learning to the real world through play, imitation, and exploration.
