"The Carriage House School offer a warm, nurturing environment for children to grow and learn. Each child's self concept is greatly enhanced by the caring teachers' interacting with him/her on an individual basis, identifying his/her unique needs and abilities.
The developmental philosophy of the Carriage House School offers a secure environment in which a child experiments while forming a basis for successful relationships and fostering an openness to learning, so crucial in later years. Based on the theory hat children learn through play, our self directed activities allow children to "discover for themselves" while the staff act as enablers of learning. Activities and daily routines are presented to challenge sensory, motor, perceptual and language skills, as well as offering practice of social and self help skills.
We advocate a love of 1earning by allowing each child to experience their own stage of development and helping them to feel success without pressure moving one step at a time. Each child's level of cognitive development will be respected and challenged. Just as a child cannot run before they strengthen their leg muscles by standing, creeping, crawling and walking they cannot do elementary school math before understanding the spatial relations, seriation and classification concepts best learned through hands-on building, sorting, filling, emptying investigating and collecting in the preschool years. Our learning centers offer these developmental challenges through a variety of activities.
