Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

Our Mission is to see that every child in our care is seen, heard and appreciated for the unique individual that they are. Our goal is to create the best possible experience for each child, fostering curiosity and a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Parents are important and are encouraged to be involved, not only in the parent association but also by sharing a story or a holiday practiced in their faith tradition. Parents have unique gifts and much to offer to our community. Lifetime friendships begin in our parent/child program and are reinforced while waiting outside the classroom for dismissal. Play dates and shared picnics on the hill after school enable parents to form relationships that strengthen each family. Faculty and parents help one another in the important task of mentoring children to be their best selves. We hope to build community as we support children and their families in challenging times.

Curriculum & Teaching Approach

From the Director:

Our philosophy is that children learn best through creative play. Teachers stimulate ideas through stories, information and materials that encourage children to problem solve and use their imagination to take their play one step further. Many interests and ideas come from the children themselves and teachers use that enthusiasm to stimulate interest in the basic skills needed as they grow into the next phase of their school experience. This approach keeps children motivated towards early literacy and happy in school.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The staff of Brown Memorial Weekday School believes that each child is a unique individual. To fulfill the child's needs, we provide a rich variety of activities and experiences. We endeavor to create a warm, accepting atmosphere in which the child feels secure and wants to learn. Learning is an ongoing process which begins at home and expands as horizons widen. With the help we seek from parents and by means of a curriculum that is sensitive to individual development, teachers guide each child in growth toward social maturity. It is our hope that each day offers not only challenge without pressure, but also many opportunities for success so that every child leaves school with feelings of contentment and self-esteem. "
