Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy is that young children learn best by doing. Learning requires active thinking and experimenting, to find out how things work, and to learn first-hand about the world in which we live. This is true for the infant who explores the world through senses, and true for the older child beginning to understand how words describe thoughts and feelings. Play enables children to achieve the key goals of our curriculum and is the medium through which children learn best"
Excerpted from the preschool's website
