• Early childhood education is essential to human development and to the improvement of society.
• Children instinctively desire to learn. The school, its teachers, and its facilities guide children's innate curiosity by presenting them with a series of prepared environments that foster self-development.
• Carefully balanced classrooms contain diversity in age, backgrounds, and skill levels. This diversity enriches the children's social development. It teaches cooperation, mutual respect, and peace-the foundations of civilized society.
• Movement is a natural activity of children and a significant contributor to their self-development. The school's indoor and outdoor environments improve the children's physical education and inspire their appreciation of the natural world.
• Excellence in education requires not only respect for the children, but also the active involvement of families and faculty. The school encourages faculty development and parent participation in the children's education.
