Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We provide experiences that enrich and enhance each child's cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development. Within the center's daily schedule, each child has opportunities to create, explore the environment, learn problem solving and personal interaction skills. Concepts are learned through hands-on experience using a balance of self- and teacher-directed activities. Opportunities for soiltary play as well as group play are provided. Staff provide care that is supportive, nurturing, warm and responsive to each child's individual needs. We respect parents as the primary and most important provider of care and nurturing, and we believe parents and teachers are partners in children's care and education." -- Excerpted from the school's general information sheet
