General School Mission

"The mission of our school is to provide an atmosphere of
cooperative learning and respect for individual differences.
Our creative curriculum
focuses on active learning. We know that young learners
need positive interactions with children and adults, in order to
foster social and emotional growth. We know that families
need support and encouragement too!
Because our program is child-centered, each child has the
opportunity to explore, discover, create and grow.
Our goal is to meet the needs of the whole child.
Membership in the Co-op offers advantages for both
parent and child. When parents participate in the classroom,
they have the opportunity
to delight in the growth and development of their children,
while building lasting relationships with friends and families.
Fundraising and committee involvement helps maintain
and expand our programs.
Funds add to our general budget, and include the purchase
of new equipment and materials that go directly to the children.
