Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The philosophy of the nursery school is based on the belief that young children learn best when they are allowed to play, investigate and use language to describe their experiences. While the first mission of the nursery school is to provide young children for psychology students to observe, the second, and most important mission is to provide young children an environment, free of stress and formal academics demands, which allows children to cultivate their love of learning. The children in the laboratory school benefit from the expert guidance of teachers and college professors, who are actively working in the fields of child development and early childhood education.
