From the Director:

Our curriculum is a balance of social and academic development. It is creative, child-centered and age-appropriate.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Teachers individualize instruction to meet the needs of each child. Parents are offered ways to supplement their child's learning at home as well. Activites are designed to let each child create and learn at his/her own ability level.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We want to provide a safe, happy, place for your child to experience his or her first adventures outside the family circle. We want children to learn that the world is an exciting, interesting place. Through creative play, books, songs and interactions with teachers and other children, we want to help your child grow in body and spirit.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

At the beginning of the year, two separate open houses are held, one just for parents, the other for parents and children. Parents are given Daily Notes about what has happened at school that day. This includes activites, how much lunch was eaten, if a child slept or just rested, the child's position on the behavior chart, and reminders for the following class. Students are given "homework" assignments to work on with their parents. Conferences are held two times per year and parents are always welcome to talk to the teacher regarding their children's progress-socially and academically. Their are many events and activites held througout the year to encourage a cohesive school community.

  • Sit on the board of trustees
  • Hold social events at the school to build community
