School Notes:

We recognize that education not only implies academics and physical skills development but also social and emotional growth. We appreciate the diversity of our families and celebrate each child’s unique qualities. As we work with families to benefit children, we intend that this devotion, respect and understanding be evident in the school on a daily basis. Our teachers are committed to working with parents to achieve the best possible results for their children.

Areas of academic importance include: early learning skills in math, language, art and science. We provide each child with the necessary foundation for school readiness. In addition to academics – social and emotional well-being also plays a significant role in a child’s development. Our curriculum, various activities and daily experiences provide children with opportunities for a fun, enriching and exciting time while they build relationships. We create a positive environment that encourages children to explore their surroundings on a daily basis. Upon completion of our program, we believe that the children’s well-rounded experiences will provide them the necessary strengths for emotional, social and academic excellence.

Our Goals and Objectives: ï‚·
  • To provide a warm, supportive environment for children where they receive the nurturing and positive reinforcement they need to develop to their full potential. ï‚·
  • To provide opportunities for being with other children in a setting conducive to the development of wholesome social relationships. ï‚·
  • To provide appropriate and meaningful play experiences that contribute to the developmental needs, interests and abilities of the child. ï‚·
  • To build important foundations for future reading skills and other academic pursuits such as science, math, technology and languages, recognizing that each child comes to learning with distinct interests and abilities and at varying rates.
