Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Albright programs emphasize educational development. A developmentally appropriate curriculum features gently paced activities designed to nurture the child's love of learning and enhance cognitive, physical, social and emotional development.

Expanding your child's horizons with educationally focused activities is important at Albright. From the food of different cultures to digging for “dinosaur” bones in the sandbox, children have lots of opportunities to explore the world. Children blossom through the use of a thematic and integrated approach to learning. Instruction is individualized and geared to the needs and abilities of the individual child.
