Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Children learn by involvement, activities, and exposure. Learning must be the fulfillment of your children's stretching outward toward a great variety of experiences within which facts and skills are a part, but not the major part.
We want to turn children on to learning! We want to encourage self-respect, independence, success and confidence. We want children to learn to accept responsibility for her/his actions. We want children to learn to work and play with others-share, take turns and respect others. We are grateful for good parent-teacher relationships that create a happy support team for the children.
Most of the education for younger children is to help them in understanding their surroundings and to accept differences. It is better to build children, than to have to repair adults. Children are not things to be molded, but are people to be unfolded.
What we do to children, they do to society!
