Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Day in the Life

General School Mission

My mission is to provide quality childcare for children in a loving, safe, and secure environment. My goal is to offer programs and an environment that help children, families, and myself, work together to the best of our abilities.
I recognize that each child is unique with given guidance, compassion, and support. Parent involvement is welcomed and supported. I recognize that each child's success is dependant on unified support from the family and myself

A Typical Day

The preschool curriculum is theme-based and covers 10 interest areas (Blocks, Dramatic Play, Toys and Games, Art, Library, Discovery, Sand and Water, Music and Movement, Cooking, and Computers).
Being fluent in Russian, I am more than willing to teach your children the basics of the language.
My meal plans are based on the food pyramid. I recognize that offering a variety of foods helps children get the nutrients they need from every food groups and helps children develop healthy eating habits for life.
