Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Down to Earth Preschool utilizes an integrated curriculum that promotes an atmosphere of friendship, creativity, appreciation of nature and a desire to learn.
The program's mission is to tap the curiosity, imagination and individuality of each child, and to document the learning process through journals, art projects and educational activities.
We also strive to ease a child's transition into kindergarten by helping them become self-directed learners who are literate, respectful of others and knowledgeable about the world around them.
