Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Candyland Academy Strives:
To create a warm and loving environment in which each child will feel a sense of self-worth and have the opportunity to develop his or her own unique gifts.
To make the transition from home to school a natural one, while developing skills to meet the new challenges that transition entails. This will be done through the use of age-appropriate activities and materials.
To commit ourselves to excellence by striving to reflect the highest values and care. Staff members will be expected to exemplify life in the dealings with children and their parents.
To approach the learning process with the belief that play is fundamental to the social, emotional, and educational development of each child.
To instill in each child a strong sense of community and to foster a true love of learning.
To encourage our children to explore, make choices, and gain independence that will prepare each child's special place in the world around us."
