Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Our teachers hand pick the work pages daily for each child in order to be certain that the work fits each individuals' needs. Children that need extra help or are excelling will receive work accordingly. No one will be held back or pushed beyond what they are capable. We want all children to succeed to their capacity but not become overly anxious. We want their first learning experiences be positive.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our school experiences help the child to discover him/herself and his/her potential and to believe in him/herself as a successful person.
Because integrated learning is difficult to explain, it is often hard for observers to identify what the children are actually achieving. It is important, therefore, to help others to understand that the process, more than a product, is a major goal of early childhood learning.
Much of the teaching in preschool is done indirectly. The children learn through the varieties of material provided and the range of experiences provided. Young children play to discover. Play is the way a young child gathers information about the world around him.
Parent involvement is an important factor in the curriculum. This involvement will not only enrich parent-child relationships but parent-teacher relationships as well, and will enhance the learning process of the child.
