Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our mission is to provide childcare which encourages, enhances and reinforces the development of each child as a whole child, respecting each family's uniqueness.
Preschool children need to be actively involved in finding things out and sharing discoveries with others. This kind of "active learning" does not happen at a table with a pencil and paper, but rather through exploring, touching, questioning, problem solving, and pretending through play. CDI uses The Creative Curriculum which is dedicated to creating a positive, supportive learning environment for all children.

A Typical Day

"Typical preschool activities as part of the routine. They may include:
Circle Time: All children meet together to sing songs, play games, dance or read stories.
Large Group Time: Children play together as a large group with materials selected by the teacher; this could be a game.
Story Time: Children or adults select stories to be read aloud or children choose a book to read quietly.
Music Time: Children sing songs or move to music.
