Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"BioKids provides a nurturing environment where children are encouraged to develop into caring, self-sufficient individuals. We value and encourage parent participation in our co-operative program. BioKids is a play-based program where children's individuality is honored; we believe that children learn skills and social consciousness through play. Our classrooms provide developmentally appropriate activities where each child can feel safe, challenged and valued. We expect and encourage children to respect each other and the world in which we live."
