Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"In order for each child to develop socially, intellectually, and emotionally according to his / her individual requirements, Head Start classrooms highlight diverse activities: passive and active, individual and group-related, child and teacher initiated. Integrating learning with what appears to be simple play focuses children's attention on productive actions that teach perseverance and self-discipline, strengthen motor skills, fine-tune manipulative operations, enhance decision-making and problem-solving skills.
