Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that children learn through their play.
Children should be allowed to explore their environment in a way that is meaningful to them. Children learn best in a rich, challenging atmosphere that balances teacher-directed experiences with child-initiated experiences. Our aim is to provide a warm and nurturing environment that allows for the exercise of creativity, imagination and independence. We are sensitive to each child's developmental needs, and we strive to create an atmosphere that encourages self confidence and a positive self-image.
