Our parent cooperative is dedicated to helping children, parents and teachers grow together.
The length and frequency of school days is in line with the recommendations of early childhood educators as appropriate for the age of the children. Teacher-led group time is balanced with plenty of self-directed, hands-on experiences. The latter have been shown to allow the natural learning processes of children to occur. In a pre-planned â€œlearning through playâ€ environment children learn how to interact, problem-solve, and make decisions together. Parents, educators and researchers have found that children of these developmentally appropriate programs are not only ready for kindergarten, but also have developed a life-long love of learning.
