Our Philosophy

Our vision includes a deep commitment to providing young children with playful experiences that encourage growth of the whole child.  We value each child for their individual capabilities and embrace multiple ways of thinking.  Simply stated, the children in our school are loved!  Our teaching staff views learning as an unhurried journey, and recognizes the importance of nurturing the innate curiosity of our students. This is accomplished by facilitating opportunities for children to explore, make choices, and solve problems. Our goals are further met by establishing a strong partnership with families as they enhance all aspects of our program.

  • Challenging children to become critical thinkers
