Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Working in concert with parents to help children acquire the tools of self-control is the goal of our approach to discipline. Each conflict in the preschool gives us a chance to help children learn acceptable ways to solve problems. We never shame or isolate children to punish. Our job as teachers is to anticipate. whenever possible, and to react with a clear, understandable message when necessary. With a beautifully planned environment, a curriculum that allows children to study those things they care most about, and well-trained professional staff, the need for discipline is kept to a minimum."
