Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Smart-E-Pants, Inc., children are given the keys to continue their educational experiences. As research has already proven, children do their most important learning before the age of five. The staff at Smart-E-Pants, Inc., is committed to enhancing this learning. We believe that:
Our job is to provide children with an age appropriate environment that encourages them to learn, play, and explore.

Every child needs hands-on experiences, warmth, attention, enthusiasm, and encouragement.

Children need the joy and challenge of doing things for themselves.
Parents are the most significant adults in a child's life, therefore, it is important to us that we strive to create mutual respect between our parents and our staff.
We know that parents are a huge part of the success of Smart-E-Pants, Inc., and we expect our parents to be dedicated to their child's learning experience. We encourage daily parent-teacher communication, and we have an open-door policy.
