General School Mission

"Our Goal: Happy, Healthy Children From Head to Toe
With all the attention today on childhood development and programs for children, it is important to be well-informed.
We believe the most critical aspects of a child's development are:
A healthy sense of individuality and self-worth.
An appreciation of the enjoyment and benefits of play.
An understanding that the mind and body work together, and that taking care of both is the best way to feel good about yourself.
Our classes include a balance of activities that enhance both physical and mental skills. Each child's individual strengths are identified and encouraged. We believe the exploration of many activities is the essence of becoming excited about learning.

A Typical Day

"Time where each child can explore a wide range of activities, set up on several tables around the classroom. One table is teacher-directed.
Circle Time
Interactive time giving the children an opportunity to strengthen their use of language. It includes activities such as calender, song time and a weather report. To encourage a sense of community, each child is given a daily job such as Snack Helper, Book Helper or Calender Helper.
Gym Time
The great Northwest is beautiful, but not very conducive to outdoor play. Being physically active is an important part of a young child's development. To help meet this need, we have an indoor gym with equipment geared for the younger student. Students spend thirty minutes of each class in our gym; part of this time is teacher-directed and part is free play. In addition to the physical advantage, the gym offers the children a natural learning environment to enjoy wonderful imaginary play.
Closing Time
Students end the day together, talking about what happened during the day and what will happen the next time they come to class.
Snack Time
Students take turns bringing a healthy snack to share with the other students in their class.
