Day in the Life

General School Mission

"To provide children with the opportunity to socialize with their peers in a safe, stimulating, well-supervised environment

To treat each child as an individual, and to respect their differences.

To allow each child to separate and participate in activities at their own pace.

To acknowledge and respect the many emotions a parent feels during their child's first school experience.

To encourage a love of learning.

To nurture each child's creativity.

To encourage children's self-help skills.

To empower children with the tools needed to resolve conflicts on their own.

As a non-sectarian school, to teach children about the customs and symbols of the major Christian and Jewish holidays, without covering the religious aspects of any holidays.

To motivate through positive reinforcement.
