Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We invite children to develop a love of learning for a lifetime. All of our children are nurtured, valued, and respected. Children are free to learn independently at their own pace; and learning is allowed to occur naturally. Parents can feel comfortable knowing that their children are cared for in an encouraging learning atmosphere—one that is supportive of intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth.

Guided by the Montessori philosophy, we gently help children learn how to learn in a secure, prepared environment, laying a firm foundation for them to become confident, caring and successful human beings.
