Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that every child is a unique individual with strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, abilities, and feelings. We accept every child as he/she comes to us, and through a variety of developmentally appropriate activities we provide the opportunity for the child to grow socially, intellectually, emotionally, and physically. We provide a classroom climate which promotes the development of self confidence, the ability to relate to peers, learning by doing and a continued sense of curiosity and wonder about the world and all that is in it.
We believe that the strength of our program is the dedication of our professional teaching staff. Our staff is chosen for their love, enjoyment and respect for children as well as their educational background and experience. We support our staff as they continue to learn and grow in the field of early childhood.

We believe in positive methods of discipline. We establish consistent, age appropriate limits to help children function in their world. Our programs are designed to develop in children a sense of independence and responsibility. We desire to strengthen each child’s own cultural identity, while at the same time, instilling respect for and acceptance of others.

Working in partnership with parents is a vital part of our program. We provide opportunities for parents to be involved with their child’s program, to have open communication with the teacher, and be involved with each other in social and educational experiences.
