Day in the Life

General School Mission

We believe it is our job as early childhood educators to establish a learning environment which respects and nurtures the individual and growing needs of each child in our program The organization of the classroom and curriculum support children’s physical, emotional, social, and cognitive growth through active exploration, play, and hands-on experiences. Children are encouraged to take risks in learning and to feel empowered by their accomplishments. Our
primary goals are that children will develop confidence in their abilities and acquire essential tools needed to be successful in future learning experiences.
