Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that an educational program for the young child should prepare him for school and future life by developing self-reliance and thought processes. A child's desire to learn is natural and should be fostered to make maximum use of his early years and to develop his love for learning. Our program provides for a structured and an unstructured approach to learning. The unstructured program allows freedom to learn in a prepared environment by promoting socialization and encouraging experimentation, discovery, and creativity. A structured program ensures mastery of skills in a sequence that allows a child to develop and progress at his own rate.

Our goal is to develop the child's full potential by stimulating imagination, creativity, and reasoning so that he will enjoy, understand, and retain what he has learned
