Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe in providing a safe, healthy and nurturing environment that is age appropriate and sensitive to each child's social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs, while fostering individual creativity and positive self-image.
We believe in quality programs which offer developmentally appropriate materials, learning centers and classroom arrangements that allow children opportunities to make their own choices to explore and to experience "Learning through Play". The concept of "Learning through Play" is simply a spontaneous and enjoyable way children develop skills and learn about themselves, and others and the world around them, by exploring, problem solving and using their imaginations.
We believe in the strength and dedication of our teachers. We support our staff through training workshops, continuing education, and on the job instruction.
We believe praise and positive reinforcement are effective methods of behaviour management with children. We establish consistent, age appropriate limits and interactions to assist in the development of positive self concepts, problem solving abilities and a sense of independence and responsibility.
We believe in working hand in hand with families. We encourage parent involvement in their child's day to day activities. We will strive to grant each parent the peace of mind that comes from knowing their children are safe, loved, happy, respected and most of all, cared for in a nurturing environment"
