The Gardner School's educational philosophy encourages a learning environment that stimulates and nurtures children's growth and development. Our unique learning atmosphere incorporates a careful blend of Traditional and Montessori styles of learning through teacher directed activities and structured play. We believe that each child should be provided with experiences of self-esteem, which are essential in the adjusting, exploring and growing stages of child development. This approach ensures that each child's learning experience at The Gardner School will be nurtured at the proper pace and level, and will provide them with the educational foundation for a bright future.
The Gardner School's carefully balanced program features a full day of developmentally and age-appropriate lessons and activities that your child will enjoy. Whether infant, toddler or preschool, our teachers provide lessons and activities that help develop the whole child ï¿½?? physically, emotionally, intellectually, and socially. Understanding that each child is unique, our teaching philosophy incorporates structured activities while remaining flexible enough to foster self-discovery that will help each child explore and learn at their own pace.
At TGS, early childhood education is redefined. Each member of our faculty and every aspect of our learning programs are dedicated to enable your child to be the best he or she can be.
A typical day at The Gardner School depends on the age of the child. When you tour the Center, you will notice the daily schedules posted on the parent board located outside of each room. The daily schedule that pertains to the age of your child will provide you with information regarding your child's daily routine. Generally, the day will include: morning welcome; snack; learning activities; outside play; lunch; rest time; afternoon snack; and afternoon activities that could include supplemental enrichment activities such as Tap, Ballet, Gymnastics, Music, Karate, and Computer Instruction. We assure you that your child will experience a balance among learning activities, rest and play.
