"We base our philosophy on Jean Piaget's theory of child development. We believe young children are active learners. They need to manipulate and explore the world and then share their discoveries with friends and caring adults. At Silver Spring Day School, we provide the opportunity for these kinds of real life experiences, offering challenge and fun in an atmosphere that allows children to learn at their own pace. Therefore, we prepare our class plans flexibly, to allow for individual differences among children. We strive to have children realize their individual potential and feel successful. Children at Silver Spring Day School develop positive images of themselves and build strong relationships with peers and adults. This allows them to take in a larger community."
