Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe in providing children with an environment that fosters a secure and comfortable feeling. We therefore offer an activity-based curriculum with the goals of encouraging creativity, autonomy and exploration. Each child is viewed as a unique individual providing enhanced self-image by making choices, enjoying early success experiences and having social interactions. The children are encouraged to question and explore and to understand that there is more than one correct answer to most problems. The teacher’s role is to observe, recognize and plan for the differences in the children’s development and to support the children’s growth toward independence. Each teacher will act as a facilitator and guide meeting the needs of all children in the classroom.
