Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The faculty at Grace Lane, including our Pre-Kindergarten, Nursery, Toddler, and Tiny Tot programs, will dedicate many hours caring for and educating your children. It is our mission to love, nurture, and educate each child as if they were our own. We will actively participate in their social, emotional, and educational development.

Our philosophy is a simple constant premise: provide the safest, healthiest, most nurturing atmosphere possible. We believe the most productive learning environment is a secure setting for your child. When a child feels secure they are more receptive to absorb the educational curriculum offered.

I personally and professionally believe in structure. In raising my own children and others for the past 25 years I firmly believe in organization. Guidelines, procedures, and rules, when properly applied, enhance the sense of security a child needs—actually requires.

Some may call me old fashioned, but I believe good sound methods and principles stand the test of time. As time marches forward and changes take place, we too go forward and yet keep close to us the methods and principles, which have stood that test of time.
