Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

We offer fun, developmentally appropriate activities to develop small and gross motor skills. Imaginative instruction includes alphabet, numeral, and counting games, singing, dramatic play, organized table games, and group activities. Our students enjoy full use of The Nettelhorst School's extensive facilities, including the art rooms, gymnasium, dance room, kitchen, World Music Café, theater, and science and computer laboratories. Field trips support the particular themes children are learning in the classroom.
