Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Program development, staff selection and daily operation reflect the
encouragement of growth through exploration of self and environment, development of socialization skills, and adherence to guidelines designed
to maintain a free yet flexible classroom environment. Activities promote critical and creative thinking, self-expression, self-respect, responsibility and good citizenship.
The tenets guiding all functions of the Day Nursery School are:
All children are unique individuals and should be praised as such.
Each child has something of value to offer.
Growth and learning in children follow specific developmental and sequential patterns, although rates and styles may differ.
A nursery school should foster joy in learning, self-esteem in each individual, love and concern for others, healthy relationships with teacher/s adults, and the
principles of good citizenship as appropriate to the age and experience of the children."
