Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We will, first of all and most important, strive to help the child feel good about himself as a person of worth. We will help him develop independence, self-discipline, and responsibility. Recognizing that all children develop at different speeds, we will have available materials on hand to enable each child to advance in basic skills as far as he desires and is able. We will strive to help the child learn not only to listen and hear, but to communicate effectively with others. Finally, our aim is to provide meaningful, stimulating, and happy experiences to carry along with him the rest of his life"
