We believe our school is a special place, unique in a childâ€™s experience, and
designed to provide the components of a quality early childhood educational
program. Recognizing how crucial and important the early years of childhood
are, we believe in inspiring children to reach their highest potential academically, socially, physically and artistically.
The components of our program are:
â€¢ A stimulating environment, rich with opportunities for learning in
Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and the Arts, which
enhances the childâ€™s natural curiosity and desire to learn in an atmosphere
of loving care.
â€¢ Low adult-child ratios, which are associated with more extensive
teacher-child interaction and the ability to individualize learning. Small
group size provides more opportunities for teachers to encourage
exploration, problem-solving and promote language development.
â€¢ The development of cognitive, social-emotional, and motor skills, which
are related to early learning and later academic achievement.
â€¢ Teachers who are degreed, teach using the principles of developmentally appropriate practice, and are committed to continued
growth as professionals to improve the learning of all students.
We open our doors at 7:00 a.m. As the children arrive, they are free to make choices among the variety of activities around the rooms. The school day begins for our Pre-k class at 8:30 while the kindergartners begin their day at 9:00 a.m. Each class starts their day with circle time followed by a snack. The children are divided into smaller groups and move about the room experiencing each academic area, which is lead by a teacher. Recess comes in the middle of the morning, after which the children return to the room to continue working in their groups. Lunch comes at 12:00 followed by a short recess. The Pre-K class has a rest time while the kindergartners continue with their learning throughout the afternoon.
Each class not only learns the core academic subjects but also learns about fine art, authors and illustrator of children's books, computer technology, music and Spanish.
