  • Therefore, One Fifty Parker School is experience based, hands-on project oriented with many opportunities for exploration and discovery.
  • The physical plant, materials, equipment and staff at One Fifty Parker provide a place for children to develop a love of learning, a deep-seated internal conviction of confidence and self-worth, respect and concern for others, mastery of developmentally appropriate tasks and a joyous experience of childhood.
  • Each child is a unique individual, and we interact with each child as such, helping each child to develop and refine potential through an integrated approach.
