Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our purpose is to create a safe and positive educational experience for young children. Our goal is to build a foundation which will allow the whole child to grow. We provide activities which enable children to develop at their own pace. Our program offers a qualified teaching staff, well-designed classroom environments and developmentally appropriate materials and activities.
In order to implement a superior early childhood program, we strive to:
Provide for the development of the child's physical, social, emotional, and cognitive growth.
Create a learning environment, using learning centers and small group instruction to meet each child's individual needs, interests and learning styles.
Provide a variety of 'hands-on' activities with the understanding that children learn best through first hand experiences.
Emphasize the process of learning rather than the end product.
Provide an environment where children can be children and where play is an important part of a child's total development.
