Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Each child is unique in his/her physical, emotional, social and cognitive development and each child has a different learning style. We will do our utmost to implement an educational program which is based on our knowledge of child development, which adapts to the needs and interests of the children, and which promotes autonomy and social skills

Children will be supervised at all times and given warm care and guidance daily. We will encourage the development of conscience and social skills by setting consistent clear limits. Situations requiring discipline will be handled with supportive language. When a child's behavior is not acceptable, such as hitting, kicking, biting and other hurtful actions, we will respond by naming the behavior. The children will be encouraged to calm down, regain self-control, withdraw from the situation and redirected to a new activity.

We will try to resort to encouragement, inventiveness and humor instead of competition, comparison and criticism.
