Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Our teachers test children according to their skill level and monitor the areas that each child needs to work on until they master those areas. Children are allowed to learn at their own pace but area given activities and sources that meet those developmental needs to complete that particular level. The child can then move up to the next classroom to master that particular level.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We feature programs that guide children to school readiness while building a healthy self-esteem. Each child is a very important part of our Bay Area family.

A Typical Day

All classrooms have scheduled times for classroom activities as well as outdoor time and quiet times. Each classroom has a different schedule and these may be reviewed on our website. You can go to for more info.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

All directors are available more than 80% of the open hours of either center. Directors are always open to communication with all parents and children. Infants are sent home with a form that tells the parent diaper changes, feeding, sleeping, etc during the day. 18 month and older children's parents are given a daily explanation of how the day went with their child. Parent-teacher meetings are held if necessary and we provide information to all families for services/activities that are happening in the community. An annual summary of student learning progress will be completed for each child.

Parents Say They are Encouraged to:

  • Fundraise

Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Small group sessions
  • Extra staff dedicated to handle separation

Handling Separation: From the Director

Alot of children have difficulty separating from their parent in the fist week or so of childcare. We understand the difficulties and concerns both parents and children have. Our teachers will, to the best of their ability, try to reasurre both the parent and the child until the child becomes comfortable with the new situation.
