Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our goal is to encourage your child's natural love of learning

We believe that children's early years are a wonderful and vital time in their development! They are learning so much about themselves, others and the world they live in.

We believe each child develops in their own unique way!

We believe we are all lifelong learners! Our goal is to encourage your child's natural love of learning during these important and formative years.

We believe children learn best by doing and in making choices about how they learn. We strive to create a rich learning environment with many appropriate activities to promote your child's social, emotional, mental, physical and academic growth"
