Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The ESNS curriculum is play oriented and child initiated, putting emphasis on supporting children's social and emotional growth and encouraging them to learn how to learn by exploring, discovering and mastering the world around them.
Two teachers and one parent oversee the classes, ensuring a close, personal approach and a rich curriculum. The program incorporates creative arts, science experiences, nature and music. Teachers foster preschool skills such as listening, observing, self-expression and problem solving.
Our daily routine consists of group activities, including music and movement, discussions of holidays and traditions from around the world and story time; free-choice activities such as dramatic play, blocks, cooking and art; snack time; outdoor play and/or other large-motor activities
