Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

We recognize that all children develop in stages at different rates. We aim to meet your child at his/her level and move forward.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

We believe in open communication with parents. We provide monthly calendars that provide parents with our learning goals and activities. We will gladly meet with parents to discuss a child's progress and maintain an open classroom for parent observation.


Separation is Handled through:

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

Handling Separation: From the Director

We want your child to have a positive experience at school. A small amount of anxiety is normal and so we plan fun, creative ways to get your children involved with our curriculum and forget about mom & dad. In cases where the anxiety is more severe, we work one on one with the child to make them feel comfortable with their surrounding and their new peers.
