Philosophy & Mission


OUR PHILOSOPHY

As early childhood educators our job description extends beyond the classroom. We
are researchers examining current pedagogic trends, we are investigators looking for innovative ways to reach and teach children, and we are gatherers of information, utilizing first-rate materials that will support children’s play while augmenting their budding knowledge. We believe in providing a safe space for children to evolve with much time devoted to maintaining a nurturing learning environment where their efforts are supported. By establishing a strong home-school-community connection, we inspire children to become social learners, creative thinkers, and effective problem solvers.


OUR MISSION

Our ultimate goal is to empower and motivate children through the application of age appropriate, experiential learning while respecting and celebrating each child’s cultural diversity and personal individuality.
