General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Co-op

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We believe that children’s play is a very important way of learning. Class sizes are small and the atmosphere is child-centered. Our dedicated teachers have created an environment that is inviting, secure, and rich in opportunities for the children to express their creativity, to explore new ideas, and to interact with other children.

Teachers introduce project ideas to the classroom, always basing their choice of projects on the children’s interests. The artwork and documentation displayed in the classrooms encourages the children to revisit their learning experiences and keeps parents informed about what our children are learning.
