Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

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

From the Director:

An appropriate education is built upon free-play, learning to share and get along with peers, learning and exploring.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

My greeting time, and also the last 10 min. of the day are wonderful times to help children along that need specialized instruction. I also watch carefully during activities for times I can extend a child's learning, or work with someone who is a little behind.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

I am passionate about teaching young children! I believe in a developmentally, age appropriate education for 3's, 4's and 5's. Each child should be happy to be at school, feel successful and smart when they are there, and learn in a non-threatening environment. A tradtional education is superior for a young child, because it will include hands on learning, dramatic play, outside play, art, science, free exploration, block play, as well as learning letters and numbers, shapes and colors. Nursery rhymes and fairly tales are also an important part of the curriculum and are integral to reading readiness. Families should send their preschool child to a certified and licensed teacher and preschool. This is what Super Start Preschool is all about.

Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school

Handling Separation: From the Director

I work closely with each parent to make sure the transistion from home to school is smooth and happy.
