Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

Children learn best when they are having fun. We believe in making their environment fun and stimulating so they learn while they are most receptive.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We believe that the education children receive during the early years is extremely important. We will provide your child with a stimulating environment to foster experiences that will aid in achieving their individual potential. We furnish supportive experiences that are age appropriate to help them develop a positive self concept.

A Typical Day

Our day is set up to teach each child to be independent. There are circle times, art projects, letter recognition, and number games all centered around a theme. Monthly calendars go out to keep the parents updated on each day's theme. All calendars are also posted on our website for easy reference. There are job charts with rotating assignments. Each day includes a snack time and gross motor time.
