Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We know that nursery school fills very important needs in the lives of young children. Nursery school provides children with an expanded world of people, objects, and ideas that are open to creative exploration. It is a safe environment to form social contacts with others of the same age, and to learn the give and take of group play. During these vital years, children need wise and understanding guidance to help form good habits, and warm and loving support to create a sense of personal worth."
Excerpted from the preschool's website

A Typical Day

"Each day has a consistent schedule that includes free play, specific projects, story time, snack time, and large muscle play on either the outdoor playground or in our well-equipped “rainy day” room."
