Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Small World, we believe in the child's total development. We believe that children should develop socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively. Our warm, loving atmosphere will create a love for school and a craving for learning. When a child feels comfortable and secure, he or she will grow socially and intellectually. What is learned in preschool will last a lifetime.
