Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that birth to age six is the most important and fertile years for
learning. We also believe that each child is a unique individual deserving
of nurturing care and respect. Our primary goal is to provide a positive,
creative learning environment in which each child may fully develop socially, emotionally, physically, and academically."
