Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Based upon principles of Child Development and Developmentally Appropriate Practices, Hamilton-Madison House early childhood programs create a learning environment that enhances healthy social, intellectual, emotional, and physical growth of children. Facilitated by caring, knowledgeable, sensitive teachers, each child's needs are met without losing sight of the whole group. By providing an integrated curriculum, children are offered the opportunity to bring forth their own experiences and to explore their own areas of interest through experiences in the classroom community, extra-curricular activities, self-exploration, and teacher directed activities.
Hamilton-Madison House delights in the growth and changes seen in the children and their families, and certainly welcomes family members and staff to become part of the classroom community."
