Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We base our philosophy on simple principles. Children have a powerful innate desire and ability to learn about and interact with their world. We believe that at a young age, learning through free and structured play is the ideal way of promoting development of physical, mental and social skills. To this end we syncretize some of the better educational principles from an eclectic mix of teaching methods from such schools as Regio Emilio, Waldorf, Montessory and High Scope and then fashion our own unique approach to early childhood education. We never stop learning and we continuously explore new and creative ways of teaching.
