It is our feeling that children's emotional growth and
development is strengthened when they are exposed
to a stimulating environment and given the opportunity to learn
Academic skills are gradually integrated into our program as
the developing child begins to feel comfortable with who he/she is
as an individual as well as in relationship to others.
From birth, children are active
learners. They accumulate various experiences and
integrate them into what becomes their own experiential
understanding of themselves to the rest of the world. Each
opportunity of hands-on understanding challenges them to
formulate their own realizations and reinforces, not only each
child's sense of autonomy, but a sense of achievement as well.
Our program is designed to implement
individual and group activities that enrich physical,
cognitive, social and emotional growth. These include
well-equipped outdoor areas as well as a wide variety of
learning materials that playfully introduce science,
literature, math and music. There is also creative art and
dramatic play throughout the day.
Each child is unique and
has very individual needs. Our staff seeks to provide a safe
and nurturing environment. Children are empowered to use their
words to express themselves about their joys and frustrations
as well as interpersonal relationships. This is achieved
through positive guidance and an emphasis on self-discipline.
Families are important.
We encourage parent involvement and believe that working
together as a team creates a consistent environment where
children thrive at home as well as at school. Quarterly meetings
and scheduled events will allow parents to actively
participate in their child's preschool experience. Our school
truly feels that the years spent at preschool enables children
of every culture, race and ethnical background to build their
