General School Mission

"The Purpose of Laren is to provide an early education program in which the foundations for a lifetime of creative learning are developed effectively and efficiently within the child. We do this by surrounding the child with maximum motivation and the opportunity to achieve at his or own level.

Laren also helps to develop in children those habits and skills that are essential in becoming efficient students. These include concentration, order, initiative, creative self expression, cooperation, and persistence in completing tasks.

Appropriately designed learning tasks and materials geared to each child's level of learning assure success and develop self confidence. In performing these tasks the child not only learns that work is a source of keen personal enjoyment, but gains a feeling of security and a sense of independence.
