School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Just Kids' philosophy/mission statement was developed on the notion of "whole child" development in an inclusionary environment. The program is based on developmentally appropriate early childhood practices that support the importance of early childhood learning experiences including play and a planned program that supports the needs of young children and their families.
Just Kids' believes that all children can learning and that learning occurs in all areas of development-social, emotional, cognitive, linguistic, and physical. Just Kids believes that all areas of development are interrelated and interdependent and that learning occurs at different rates for different children and that the child's early learning environment and experiences significantly impact their lifelong development.

" Just Kids believes that the best outcomes for children occur when families and professionals work together in partnership to meet the unique needs of the child and family."

A Typical Day

The day is filled with developmentally appropriate play and learning experiences. The program has a strong focus on literacy and language through social development. Teachers engage actively with children and offer a wide variety of experiences in art, music and movement.
Readiness for kindergarten is considered in all elements of the program.
