Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Each class has a carefully designed developmentally appropriate curriculum, hands-on materials, and toys to enhance social, emotional, and cognitive development. Each day the children learn responsibility during clean-up time as they put away toys and art materials.
Snack-time offers the children a chance to relax and renew spent energy. It is also a time to enhance language development and math readiness as children and teachers talk about the day. Our snacks are mostly non-sweet, healthful foods.
Playground and outdoor play is part of the daily schedule. The playground and indoor large motor play areas provide the time and space for the children to master large motor skills and channel their energies.
Field trips are scheduled throughout the year to develop children's awareness of the world around them.
