Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We are entrusted with the children of others and we take that trust very seriously. We work diligently to provide a nurturing and safe environment for growth and learning. We know that in order for children to develop fully, their social, emotional, physical and cognitive needs must be met. Our experienced staff works together each day to meet these individual needs.
We provide a balanced program of socialization and learning. Each day includes numerous opportunities for free play and exploration, as well as teacher directed, small group activities. Our curricular themes are seasonal and literature based.
Each family is treated with kindness and respect. It is difficult for families to be apart during working hours. We understand that and try to make it easier.
