Day in the Life

General School Mission

The Mosaic School is a small early childhood program that invites children from all families to learn, explore, question and bond. We believe that each child is unique, naturally curious and ready for independence. This step in their development is crucial to the way we approach our curriculum. We look at each group enrolled and find the needs of each student. All children learn in their own unique way. At The Mosaic School we will celebrate their need for autonomy, while challenging and supporting their needs to be social. We feel learning can be fun, challenging and successful.

The Mosaic School promotes social growth, respect for oneself, the environment and for others. We use our community as an integral part of your child’s experience. We take planned field trips and use our beautiful outside space. At the school, we use the term “Friends” to describe our fellow classmates; you will hear your child adopt that term in their storytelling to you about school.

Our staff consists of reliable, knowledgeable and supportive teachers. We enter into partnerships with families, allowing each family to be visible and productive in your child’s experience with us.

A Typical Day

Every classroom has its own schedule based on the developmental needs of their group. Drop off is at 8:00am and then the school day will begin. There is a morning snack and outside time everyday. Specialist such as :Physical ed teacher or Spanish teachers will also join the daily schedule.
