Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe preschoolers to be active learners who learn at different rates of
speed. For that reason we seek to develop the whole child cognitively, physically,
socially, emotionally and spiritually through learning activities and guidance
according to developmentally appropriate practice."
