Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The belief that young children flourish in a warm, secure and stimulating environment where they can find various experiences with people, ideas and learning materials. The top priority of the program is to develop a positive self-concept, the ability to function in a group and the acquisition of good learning habits. We've found that children who master these basic skills at an early age have an excellent foundation for future learning.
