Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Our school prides itself on keeping the child to teacher ratio very low. This enables each child to receive one on one learning time, with a teacher, on a daily bases.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Parents receive three separate detailed child assessments throughtout the school year to track their development. Parents also receive monthly calendars that list daily activities and a monthly newsletter that describe our monthly outing and events.


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Small group sessions
  • Extra staff dedicated to handle separation

Handling Separation: From the Director

We have a very low teacher child ratio so each child receives the extra care and nurturing that they should need during their adjustment to school or at anytime during the year.
