Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Children learn best in stimulating rooms with toys and activities that encourage their active participation.
Children need loving adults who know and respect children's needs and abilities.
All people learn and grow physically, socially, emotionally and mentally.
Young children learn mainly by their senses: touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound.
Our Purpose is to help young children learn, grow, and feel good about themselves. We can do this best by giving them a variety of opportunities:
to exercise all parts of their bodies, to get plenty of sunshine and fresh air. (physical growth)
to interact, play and talk with other children and adults and to gain independence with our encouragement and guidance. (social growth)
to express their feelings, to love and be loved and feel good about themselves. (emotional growth)
to discover new things, to solve problems in games and situations and to verbally express their ideas and feelings. (mental/cognitive growth)
