Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

We have a system that has proved its self over the past 25 years and has many good students. This includes Grolier's "You Can Read" series.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Our teachers work in teams so that every child has the opportunity to communicate their issues.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

All children are capable of learning and discipline but they must be given the opportunity to metamorphis. Just as the caterpiller becomes the beautiful butterfly.

A Typical Day

We open at 7:30am. Some children need to complete their breakfast if they arrive before 8:30am. Others either play in the main room or watch a video from our library.
At 9am we step outside to say the Pledge of Alligance together ages 2 and up. We then discuss the calendar and the community. The group the divides according to their abilities and go to class. At 10am we break for snack and recess outside. Clean up and bathroom is at 10:40 and then back to class until noon when we have lunch.

Nap time is from 1pm to 3pm and we request that there be no visitors at this time. The afternoon is for play and fun. On Tuesday the Ice Cream Truck arrives and each child chooses a treat. On Thursday we have Playball, Inc. come to teach many fun games.
On Friday Mr Tate comes to play his guitar and harmonica with us as we sing.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

We have an open door policy where the parents are free to come with their concerns or questions.
They may also call or email at their convenience. If we notice a problem we may suggest that the parent call FDLRS for free screening. There are many sources available and we will assist.

Parents Say They are Encouraged to:

  • Hold social events at the school to build community
  • Are able to visit the school anytime we want
  • Volunteer in the classroom
  • Receive newsletters

Modes of Communication

  • Notes
  • Phone Calls
  • Email
  • Special Meetings
  • Drop-Off
  • Pick-Up
  • Regular newsletter/printed updates circulated to the whole school


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school

Handling Separation: From the Director

We are open year round and the children come one by one and not as a large group. This allows us to focus our attention on the new student and meet their needs.
