Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Our teachers recognize that all children are unique and have different learning styles and abilities. Lesson plans and instructions are based on observations and assessments so as to best meet the needs of the individual child. Our school also uses Creative Curriculum which promotes the highest level teaching theory for developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) in an early childhood setting.

We believe that every child deserves the SandCastle experience.

It is only natural for children to have a level of seperation anxiety. Out teaching staff is trained and skilled at helping a child accept the emotion and to ease it for them as they transition into class.
