Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The early years of a child life are tremendously important in determining the child's future. Children of developing ages two, three, four, and five years are able learners, capable of doing far more than had ever been expected when schools first began teaching children at age six.
The International Children's School believes the experiences, the needs and the attitudes of children differ. Every child is especially unique. There can be no doubt that greater learning opportunities must be offered to encourage and stimulate their learning development. If a child is not given opportunities early in life for development of mind/body and relationships with others, it will become difficult for them later. We must keep in mind there is no second chance at childhood.
The development of a young child is an ongoing process that we believe is influenced by all events the child experiences. Our school will promote the development of these experiences, and in providing an excellent curriculum, many children will be able to realize their full intellectual, social and emotional potential.
The International Children's School supports the early development of a bilingual/multicultural program which we feel is an essential in assimilating new ideas and experiences into children's lives. In offering these programs, every child gains awareness, sensitivity and appreciation of their cultural heritage. Our trained bilingual professionals will create a language program where learning is most effective, where a child will create a language program where learning is most effective, where a child will become familiar enough to stimulate interest and activity. We also intend to develop an “English as a Second Language Program” for children who may need assistance in English.
We are an early learning school for children; children can play and learn. We encourage their level of knowledge through a variety of experiences in arts, music, story telling, sign language, foreign language, global travels, cooking, and much more.
THE PRIMARY GOAL of the International Children's School is to instill a high regard for academic learning and a respect for and appreciation of cultural diversity.
THE CHILDREN'S GOALS are accomplished through the acquisition and mastery of cognitive (thinking) skills taught through a traditional knowledge based curriculum.
WE SEEK to raise the quality of children's lives and to inspire them to a lifelong love of learning.
