Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

From the Director:

We realize that every child will not grasp everything that is taught, while some may exceed far beyond what we introduce. Our goal is to simply expose the children to basic concepts, not require that they learn them. We do not want to pressure a child into anything he/she is not ready to learn.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

The teachers talk to parents on a daily basis. When they take the children out to the car, the parents get a quick comment about their child's day. Individual conferences are available at any time if desired.

Separation

Separation is Handled through:

  • Extra staff dedicated to handle separation

Handling Separation: From the Director

Each child is unique; they each need something different to adapt to the preschool environment. Some need extra time, some need extra activities, and some need extra love and attention from the teachers. We strive to find out what specifically your child needs and we focus on attaining that goal.
