Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

we believe that children learn best through play and so we provide many materials to promote that learning.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We believe that all children learn best through play and interactions with others. Therefore, we design play experiences that are age-appropriate and meet that child’s current needs. Explanation: we do not expect a baby to perform as a toddler. Also, we spend ample time on the floor with each child daily to nurture and foster the teacher-child relationship
