Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our basic philosophy of education for the preschool child is:
1. To develop the habit of creative thinking
2. To develop within the child a positive self image
3. To develop attitudes of social cooperation and moral responsibility
4. To develop a knowledge and appreciation of persons, things, and events in the environment
5. To provide a readiness program which utilizes the experiences of the children while
building a foundation for future math and reading skills
6. To establish and maintain an open relationship with parents
