Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"WE BELIEVE EVERY CHILD HAS A RIGHT TO A POSITIVE SCHOOL EXPERIENCE. THROUGH A WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT AND A TEACHER THAT ALLOWS AND RESPONDS TO THE INDIVIDUALITY AND EXPLORATION, EACH CHILD WILL DEVELOP A POSITIVE SELF-IMAGE. THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN APPRECIATION FOR ALL PEOPLE AND THEIR DIVERSITY WILL HELP ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL.
THE CLASSROOMS ARE DESIGNED FOR CHILDREN TO ACTIVELY LEARN. WELL QUALIFIED TEACHERS ACT AS FACILITATORS ENCOURAGING, GUIDING, AND HELPING THE CHILDREN TO ACHIEVE. THE INDIVIDUAL LEARNING STYLES AND ABILITIES OF EACH CHILD ARE CONSIDERED IN ALL PLANNING. CHILDREN LEARN BEST THROUGH DISCOVERY AND WITH A VARIETY OF HANDS-ON ACTIVITIES. ALL SENSES ARE USED TO LEARN, ALLOWING THE CHILDREN TO EXPERIENCE THE WORLD AROUND THEM THROUGH SMELL, TASTE, SIGHT, SOUND, AND TOUCH.
THEMATIC UNITS ARE APPROPRIATE APPROACHES TO INSTRUCTION. THE ARTS ARE INCLUDED AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF EACH THEME. MUSIC, MOVEMENT, ART, AND OTHER CREATIVE ACTIVITIES ARE WOVEN THROUGHOUT THE UNITS. EVERY CHILD IS ENCOURAGED AND PRAISED FOR THEIR WORK IN THIS AREA. WITHIN EVERY THEMATIC UNIT ARE EXPERIENCES TO DEVELOP SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, COGNITIVE, FINE MOTOR, AND GROSS MOTOR COMPETENCE.
EACH ROOM IS PREPARED WITH AN ANTICIPATION FOR LEARNING. TEACHERS WARMLY WELCOME THE CHILDREN INTO THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ENCOURAGE ITS USE. THE LEARNING CENTERS ARE DESIGNED TO SUPPORT DEVELOPMENT IN SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, COGNITIVE, FINE MOTOR, AND GROSS MOTOR SKILLS. AS CHILDREN PLAY, TEACHERS ASK QUESTIONS, LISTEN, AND INTERACT AS NECESSARY TO ENHANCE THE LEARNING OF THE CHILDREN.
WE FEEL ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT LINKS IS THAT BETWEEN HOME AND SCHOOL. COMMUNICATION AND INTEREST FROM BOTH IS CRITICAL TO THE SUCCESS OF THE CHILD. THEREFORE, PARENT PARTICIPATION IS INVITED. WE HOPE PARENTS WILL COME AS INDIVIDUALS TO SHARE THEIR CULTURES, TALENTS, AND TIME. TOGETHER WE CAN ASSURE THE BEST START FOR OUR CHILDREN BY FORMING A CLOSE HOME/SCHOOL COMMUNITY.
