Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

Children are helped to reach these goals by making and enjoying friends, learning to recognize the needs of others, and learning to share responsibility for the care of the world we live in. Planned activities develop motor skills, language abilities and generate experiences with math and science. Activities are designed to foster self-confidence and an appreciation for home, school, church and the community, recognizing their responsibility as well as their dependence on others.
