Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our goal is to provide a balanced preschool program for the whole child, allowing for physical, emotional, cognitive, social, and creative exploration and growth. During their preschool years, children may learn specific skills such as recognizing their names, using scissors or turning somersaults. These are important skills which encourage both adults and children. Our larger goals however, are harder for us to observe. We are watching for signs that children become comfortable with a variety of people, enjoy using their bodies, communicate their thoughts clearly, and approach life with joy and curiosity and confidence. These are attributes that will enrich their lives and assist them as lifelong learners"
