Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

At the Abbott School, we understand the importance of a consistent, nuturing environment, as as complex and challenging activity for every child's emotional, cognitive, linguistic and motor developement. We believe that all children are unique and should be encouraged to give their minds and hearts voice . . . abundantly.

Children learn best if they are immersed in complex experiences and given the opportunity to actively process what they learn. True learning is always a consequence of thinking and reflecting. The Abbott School expects and encourages this process in its teachers, its children and their families.
