Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our nursery school emphasizes development of social, emotional, physical, and readiness skills. We limit class sizes in order to grant the children more individual attention. Each child receives help in gaining self-confidence and independence with a sense of personal responsibility and respect for others.
We believe that this early experience can form a positive foundation for the remaining years of formal education. Therefore, we seek to provide a caring, interesting environment. In addition, we view parents as part of the nursery school "team" and encourage their cooperation and participation to whatever degree possible.

We believe strongly on the importance of play and self discovery. We set up the classroom so children can work independently from adult help as much as possible. This gives them a feeling of being an active member in THEIR classroom.
