Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our Philosophy

We believe in a program which is based on individual and group needs, suited to a wide range of developmental patterns and individual differences which are implemented by:

Providing experiences within a child's range of interests and competencies so that there are many opportunities for success that contribute to his or her sense of self worth;

Establishing a climate that fosters feelings of security and a sense of independence so that an awareness of one's values both as an individual and member of a group can be felt;

Providing guidance for the child as he or she learns to relate to others, so that warm human relationships can be developed.
