Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our program is based on developmentally appropriate practices that meet the cognitive, physical, emotional and social needs of children. We provide a variety of child-directed, enriching experiences in an atmosphere of learning through play.
Our qualified staff members are a key element in providing these programs, which stress the importance of positive interactions. This creates a joyful and peaceful atmosphere in which to grow and learn."
