Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Little Ones' theme-based curriculum promotes achievement by encouraging exploration and experimentation within a play and social environment. Children are encouraged to make choices and to problem solve on their own - skills fundamental for future success.
Classrooms are designed to encourage development through the careful placement of Learning Centers - areas equipped and organized to stimulate socialization, exploration and the development of specific skills."
