Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our curriculum grows out of the goals we have for all children, and an educational philosophy that is grounded in the principle that children cannot be given knowledge, but rather must be provided with experiences from which they construct their own knowledge and develop their own skills. We believe that planned, organized experiences are important, as are flexible, spontaneous experiences, and that an effective learning environment will provide a balance of both. The goals of the program are to facilitate the development of each child's:

Sense of Responsibility
Communication Skills
Ability to Make Choices
Sense of Confidence in His/Her Ability
Problem Solving Skills
Self-Management Skills
Social and Moral Reasoning Skills
Discrimination and Judgment Skills
