Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The educational philosophy of Emerson is grounded in the belief that children's play, when skillfully supervised, is an expression of intelligence and growth. Our teachers provide a play/work program, which while informal on the surface, is carefully organized and is enjoyable and absorbing for the children. The teachers' role is to guide the children's learning, matching activities with the children's specific interests and levels of development.
