Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led

From the Director:

While the approach is teacher-led, the teachers encourage the children to be creative and use their imaginations while adhering to the structure of an age-appropriate curriculum.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Children all learn at their own pace. Keeping that in mind, should a child demonstrate learning difficulties or demonstrate excelled capabilities teachers will work with them one-on-one as much as they can. They will also speak to the Owners who will then talk to the parents about receiving additional professional assistance from off-campus sources as needed. If the child appears to need a more advanced, more challenging curriculum, the teachers will develop one which blends well with their current curriculum.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Country Day of Jupiter is a family owned and operated school, dedicated to helping young children develop social skills in a loving and secure environment. We believe each child is a unique individual and should be free to mature intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially to their fullest potential. The combination of these elements provide your child a positive experience that will enhance their educational years ahead. "

Separation

Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Extra staff dedicated to handle separation

Handling Separation: From the Director

The teachers make every effort to decrease the level of separation anxiety suffered not only by the child but by the parent. To that end, the teachers will take the child from the parent upon arrival and guide the child to various activities, friends, or just hold him/her until the feelings of anxiety dissipate. Generally, separation anxiety only lasts for a few mornings when first starting school.
