Our Guiding Principals…

Socialization and Self-Regulation are the foundation for healthy development and school readiness.

Pre-academic skill acquisition is embedded in all activities.

Art and music are integrated into our daily routine and play an important role in our school day and learning.

Hands-on investigation and open-ended exploration encourage children to reason and to develop their ideas based on evidence from their observations.

Outdoor play time offers unlimited opportunities for learning and an enriching way to connect an appreciation of the natural world to academics.

Collaboration and communication among children, teachers, and parents  is crucial to the success of the learning process.

Problem solving is exercised when children have the opportunity to initiate ideas and experiment.

Close observation ensures that topics will be based on the interests of the children and that they are given the opportunity to learn in a way that is tailored to  individual needs.
