General School Mission

"Our school provides a warm, friendly environment in which children are encouraged to reach their full potential. Our primary concern is the development of a positive self concept, as we believe this is basic to successful emotional, social, physical and intellectual development. Our areas of emphasis include cooperative social interaction, large and small muscle development, language development, and age related cognitive concepts. Daily activities include outdoor play, group time with stories and songs, dramatic play, crafts, painting, carpentry, sand and water play. Three and four-year-olds also meet weekly for a special music class and older three year olds and four-year-olds have a weekly science class.
