Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our philosophy is one of guided play with small class sizes and low teacher/student ratios. Curriculum focuses on socialization and readiness skills with a wide range of developmentally appropriate activities.

A Typical Day

A combination of small group and large group activities as well as teacher-directed, student-directed and free choice activities are used daily.
