Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our primary concern in this age group is to make our little ones feel secure, important, loved, and happy in a group situation. We believe this is achieved by a shared, cooperative play space program under the direct supervision of qualified caregivers.

Because development is so individual, these statements do not define infants and toddlers by chronological age. The following provisions are directed toward the care of infants (non-walkers) and the toddler (crawlers/walkers).
