Hollow Reed School's philosophy is that children learn through doing and experiencing in a family atmosphere.
Our goal is to offer a developmentally appropriate, multicultural education, serving the needs of the whole child.
We consider the child's physical, emotional, spiritual and social as well as cognitive needs in planning our curriculum.
We include an emphasis on music, art, story telling and drama.
Our objective is to provide a safe, happy and harmonious environment for the children under our care and to offer opportunities for them to cultivate friendships and to learn skills in language arts, reading, math, physical education, science and the arts.
