Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

play-based, hands-on, experimental, meaningful learning in a mixed-aged setting with children 3-5 years of age.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

All of our teachers work with children at all different levels as we try and meet their needs. We believe in the approach of embracing children where they are at and then help to facilitate and be a partner in their learning.
We believe in the philosophy that all children are unique and wonderful.
