Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The program includes a balance of work and play, comfort and adventure, independence and cooperation. Children learn by exploring individual play interests as well as through interacting with teachers and peers. Supported by the familiar structure of the daily routine and their teachers' clear and consistent expectations, children exercise initiative in making choices and solving problems, experience the stimulation and challenge of community living, and enjoy the care and acceptance of friends.
Each day includes music, movement, outdoor play stories, poems and rhymes, and opportunities to represent objects and events through dramatic play, a variety of art mediums and written and spoken language. Children develop an appreciation of the wonders and patterns of science and nature, number and counting, and the fun and learning to be had with manipulative toys, games, and outdoor play. Throughout the year, topical themes or projects are introduced and developed. These are chosen by the teacher for their richness of content and interest to children.
