General School Mission

"At Seagull Schools we have created a rich, safe and stimulating environment to enhance children's growth. The unique world each child brings is complemented by creative and developmentally appropriate learning materials and by energetic, warm and imaginative teachers. We provide resources, opportunities and materials to increase children's cognitive or thinking skills, assist in developing their physical coordination, exercise their imagination and fantasy, build their social skills, support healthy self-concepts, and allow them to participate in the decision making process, all in an atmosphere of trust and caring for each other.

Children learn the basic concepts of numbers, sizes and shapes as well as reading and writing skills using words and stories from their own experiences. They do simple science experiments, which answer basic questions of what, why and how. They are exposed to music through songs, dances and musical instruments. Development of self-expression and body are also encouraged through creative movement activities. A healthy self-concept is encouraged through acceptance and positive communications. Outdoor play, both structured and free, helps develop physical coordination.
