Day in the Life

General School Mission

We know that every child can learn. There are two goals at our school. First, is to provide a caring, safe and warm environment where a child feels comfortable and loved. Our second purpose is to provide a curriculum that is age appropriate, stimulating, hands-on and fun.

Separation

Separation is Handled through:

  • Home visits by teachers
  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Parents in classroom early on
