Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The present contains all that there is. It is holy ground, for it is the past and it is the future."
Alfred North Whitehead, The Aims of Education
"And the child's development will be limited or distorted if it does not, by turns, explore both the personal and the non-personal aspects of his environment: but explore them, not exploit them for a known end."
David Hawkins, I, Thou, It, in the Informed Vision
"In his everyday life, play is the child's natural form of expression, a language that brings him into a communicating relationship with others and with the world in which he lives. Through play he learns the meaning of things and the relation between objects and himself, and in play he provides himself with a medium of motor activity and emotional expression."
Frederic Allen, Psychotherapy with Children
Our School strongly stresses advocacy for young children's rights to an appropriate early childhood education. The scholars above reflect the importance of educating the various aspects of a child's entire development. Our School's curriculum has been dedicated, since its inception, to allocate its resources in meeting the appropriate educational needs of any given child. Our School is extremely diligent in not giving unfounded credibility to fads, unnecessary or irrelevant conventions, outside pressure or personal bias. Our School's teachers are responsible and diligent, therefore, to devise an early childhood curriculum according to carefully examined research, objective past and current knowledge, and experience accumulated through many years of teaching.
