Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"St. Stephen’s Nursery School believes in the following statements:
Young children need a secure and loving environment for emotional and social growth. Rules and expectations at school are clear, and teachers provide models of mutual respect and care.
Young children grow and develop best intellectually when they can structure their own learning. Children are free to choose from a wide range of developmentally appropriate manipulative activities. They are encouraged to ask their own questions and are given opportunities to seek their answers in an enriched, carefully planned environment.
Young children are aided to form friendships, develop self confidence, and discover the joys of learning."
