Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"PHILOSOPHY OF LEARNING Is based on sound child development practices. We focus on each child as an individual, working from the developmental level he or she has attained and moving forward one step at a time.
Our emphasis is to inspire literacy through play. Active involvement, meaningful experimentation, and reinforcement through repetition, help each child gain a sense of pride, accomplishment and love of learning to last throughout their school years.
