Our mission is to provide a multicultural and diverse learning community, preparing each student for academic, social and personal success.
We believe children are full of potential, interest and curiosity about the world around them.
Young children construct their knowledge as they investigate, build, experiment, discover and share.
They have a natural desire to find out how things work and the answers are as important as the process of discovery! The teacher guides and supports these learning experiences so that children can develop a love for learning, independence and confident self-esteem.
Being part of a class community provides children with opportunities to learn and practice social skills, define relationships in and out of school and to discover the pleasure of friendship.
Parent collaboration and participation in the learning process is an essential, valued part of the educational philosophy.
