Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

We promote an Active, Hands-on Learning Style. Kids like to move! We expect young children to fidget, so we give them plenty of opportunities to move. Learning takes place by exploring and doing! And, we love messes. Let the kids paint, glue, glitter, cut, mix. we want them to enjoy the process of making things using many art media and cooking recipes.
