Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

From the Director:

Structured learning activities for toddlers encourage self-esteem, self control and a sense of belonging. Our preschool program develops curiosity about the world, imagination, and confidence as a learner. Prekindergarten students are taught language and literacy, math concepts, science, and social studies. Activities for school age children enrich and extend academic achievement, promote teamwork, and encourage creative expression through art and music.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Every interaction with your child is a unique opportunity to foster optimum development. Early mastery of academic skills leads to success in elementary school and beyond. We expect high achievement and we provide the structure and emotional support necessary to get it. When we do our job well, the children think they are just having fun!

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

We are a small day school with an open door policy for parents. Children are signed in and out by a parent each day, which provides an opportunity for sharing information between parent and teacher. Prekindergarten children participate in music programs presented to families in the evening several times each year.
