We are based on Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Every child is viewed as a unique individual with specific strengths. These strengths are identified and instruction takes place through each child's strengths. We focus on art, music, and creative movement, as well as language, math, science, and social skills.
Each day begins with "Circle Time," a gathering of students in each classroom, designed to allow each child to "predict" the day, preparing in his/her own mind. Children enjoy two recess periods per day. Children enjoy two snack times each day, in addition to their regularly scheduled lunch period. Music, art and creative movement are built into the everyday lesson plans as extensions to specific skill level development. This strategy allows for development of the "whole child."
