General School Mission

"To provide a balanced education for the whole child, developing their social, emotional, physical and intellectual selves.

To provide learning experiences of infinite variety through a flexible curriculum, leaving as much room as possible for problem solving, discovery and play.

To nurture creativity through open-ended activities that provide opportunities for experimentation and problem solving.

To familiarize the child with routines, rules, responsibilities and the basic social graces of being part of a community.

To foster a love of stories so the child will be eager to read. To help children to develop an ability to sit quietly for the enjoyment of listening. To demonstrate that stories and books are a source of information and joy.

To give the child every opportunity to express himself through stories and plays and through music, movement, and art.

To provide opportunities for conversation and discussion with adults and peers in order to help the child clarify his own ideas and express them confidently.

To foster a natural understanding of mathematics through the play experiences of building, measuring, counting, sorting and comparing.
