Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Learning through play
Very little "screen time" - emphasis on active play
Pre-literacy - story each day, see-saw book order forms each month, annual Book Fair, annual Poetry Week
Education enriched by parental involvement
Field trips increase understanding of outside world
Slow separation; not all children are ready for total separation by Labor Day. You may stay in the classroom as long as necessary. Many parents ease out during the change in classes.
Change in classes - children aren't confined to one room for the entire day
