Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Within our preschool program, we strive to get to know each child's individual needs and unique strengths in order to provide a program that challenges the individual while keeping the group motivated to learn.

Our day includes a variety of individual activities, small-group explorations, and large-group gatherings. Social, life-readiness, and pre-academic skill-building opportunities are woven throughout the day. As children learn through play and direct hands-on experiences, they develop skills that will help them succeed academically and socially in school.

It is important for our preschoolers to participate in outings and projects that expand their world. We schedule outings in our community on a regular basis. We also participate in group activities with classes from Adams Elementary. Notably, cooking is an important part of our program because it lends itself so well to building life, social, and pre-academic skills.
