Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

Our program is structured with a daily schedule for all ages. The Pre-K classroom is led by Scholastic and Weekly Reader Curriculum. All activities, songs, stories, field trips, etc. are based on the monthly curriculum of interest to the children, as well as the teacher. The teacher guides and scaffolds the children until they are independent learners. Self-help skills are one key to success, and we begin teaching these skills from infancy. We seek parental involvement in regards to reinforcing the learned activities at home.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

All activities are developmentally appropriate, as well as age-appropriate. We complete evaluations at different age levels to help plan a curriculum for the needs of each child. If needed, referrel's are given for professional evaluation services. Our goal to to have every child succeed to his/her fullest potential. Our program is Child-Centered, the best interest of the child is first and foremost.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

I BELIEVE; caring and specialized childcare always involves the child, family and staff. Unbiased and cultural sensitivity among families and staff, form a unique bond between the caregiver and family that promotes security and mutual understanding.

Building individuality by engaging the child in, "hands-on, real-life," experiences in and unhurried atmosphere, enhances and builds self-esteem and confidence giving way to optimal learning experiences.

Compassion and empathy are learned when mixed-ages come together to form a small group. When the caregiver is nuturing, provides a diverse curriculum and has knowledge of child developmental stages, she is able to meet the differing needs of all.

A caregiver who engages the children in a wide variety of explorative, quiet, and active play in a stimulating environment, promotes optimal development of the whole-child in the early childhood years.

Separation

Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Small group sessions
  • Abbreviated schedule at start of school year
