School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Children are encouraged to learn and grow at their own rates and in their own ways. Our teachers focus on the whole child - social, emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual - within a structure that allows for some natural flexibility.

In the preschool classrooms, children are able to learn and grow at their own rates and in their own ways. Each classroom's curriculum is based on the many aspects of a child's development, as our focus is on the whole child. We provide large- and small-group activities as well as a wide range of choices supporting interdisciplinary thematic units.
