Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The overall philosophy of our early childhood program is to provide an environment for each child that will promote his optimum development at a period when his growth is so rapid. A child develops in not just one way, but in many ways. All aspects of growth are considered as well as the development of social relationships and the capacity to get along with other people. We also consider emotional development including confidence in understanding of one's self as a person plus growth in ability to express thoughts and feelings and manage impulses. Intellectual or cognitive development is considered, including language competency. Physical, social, emotional and intellectual development is nurtured through guidance in a stimulating environment and age appropriate experiences.
In considering all aspects of a child's growth, our program puts its emphasis on accepting each child as an individual, adapting to his individual needs with respect for his individuality. We want each child to have a good self concept.
