Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Social Skills:  Meeting new friends and interacting with them during play or activity time is very important to young children. Our emphasis on sharing, helping others, and taking turns provides a basis for warm, happy relationships among children.
Emotional Development:  We believe that lifelong personality and behavioral patterns are established during the critical early years of a child's life. Our teachers offer close personal attention and careful loving guidance to meet your children¹s needs of being accepted, feeling secure, developing a positive self-esteem, and relating well with others.
Physical Development:  We emphasize physical fitness and coordination with regular exercise programs.  We use a wide variety of recreational equipment which make staying fit safe and fun for your child. Rest periods to meet individual needs are also part of our daily schedule.  Nutritional and balanced lunches are supplemented by morning and afternoon snacks to ensure that your children receive the nourishment necessary to support their active lifestyles and development.
Intellectual Development:  Our goal is to encourage your children to form a solid foundation for learning.  Recent research on brain development reveals that there are times in each child's growth for acquiring new skills. We strive to ensure that each of our classrooms takes advantage of these windows of opportunity for optimum development. In partnership with you, we seek to enable your children discover and develop their individual talents and abilities.
Creative Skills:  Creativity and individual expression are important links in the development of young minds. Through creative arts and expressive play activities, our staff encourages your children to explore and develop their creativity.
