School Notes:

  • Our mission is to inspire a lifelong love of learning and to provide our students with the skills needed to contribute to their communities as insightful, effective, caring individuals. Children learn in their own unique ways and at their own unique pace. Our responsibility is to nurture and encourage children's growth by providing a rich and challenging environment. We educate the whole child, realizing the importance of social, emotional, intellectual, and creative growth. We provide a safe, nurturing environment in which the children's developmental needs are recognized. We provide opportunities for the children to take an active role in their education, and to interact with children of all ages. Our students raise questions and seek answers on their own. They experiment, discover the diversity within themselves and their surroundings, and openly meet new challenges.
