Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Carrboro Early School we believe each child holds in himself unlimited potential to learn, to grow, to thrive. Our goal is to give each child the love, care and support they need to reach their potential. We realize that although we spend an invaluable amount of time with children, it is the family that exerts the most influence in a child’s life. In order to make a difference in a child’s life outcome, we know we must provide support to the family. Our primary responsibility to the family is providing the best possible childcare. Secondly, we must be a resource and referral when a family has a need, and when necessary we must become personally involved to help bring about successful resolutions to problems. Our desire is to build a relationship with families that will allow us to work together to create the best possible start in life for the children."
