Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy is that learning should always be fun - a happy school experience now will start each child down the road to a future of academic success. Your child will experience different learning concepts in areas such as literature, science, social studies, art, music, health, and safety."
Excerpted from the preschool's website

A Typical Day

"Our daily activities include:
Circle time
Our group gathering time allows us to share ides and learn about the lesson of the day. It's designed to stimulate a child's thinking and expand their attention span.
Story time
Our reading activities enhance and build children's vocabulary as well as develop an appreciation and enjoyment of literature.
The children experience many different learning concepts in areas such as number skills, letter recognition, colors, shapes, science, and reading readiness.
Social Studies
Social skills are stressed to help develop independence, increase self-esteem, and teach problem-solving as well as how to work together in a group setting. Home and community concepts are also presented.
Experimenting with various art media proves to be stimulating and encourages creativity and self-expression.
Learning songs and moving to rhythm helps develop listening skills, coordination, and self-expression.
Indoor/Outdoor Play
Climbing and riding equipment, as well as group games, helps to develop large motor skills, strength and coordination."
