Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Generations Together is committed to providing a safe, caring environment for all-from our youngest infant to our respected seniors. We are dedicated to nurturing a positive self-concept, encouraging independence, and establishing close friendships.

At Generations Together children learn by doing. Our program is based on an internationally recognized model developed by the High/Scope Foundation.

Using High/Scope's active learning approach, we encourage children to develop their own interests, find ways to answer their questions, and share their discoveries. In doing so, they develop self-confidence that will serve them well throughout their lives.

As children follow their intentions, they engage in key experiences that promote their mental, emotional, social and physical growth.

Key experiences are ongoing opportunities for learning about the properties of glue and Play-Doh; about writing on a typewriter; about "cooking" blueberry pancakes; about the number of balloons in a computer game; about making friends; and about ways to build a city out of blocks. These are a few of the discoveries young children make as they strive to make sense of their world.
