School Notes

  • Children learn in multiage instructional groups based upon research on child development. We recognize that children`s cognitive, physical, social and emotional abilities develop on a timeline and in a sequence that is unique for each child.Rather than teaching a one-size-fits-all curriculum that targets the middle, our teachers use a variety of approaches to reach every student, no matter his/her age, strengths or learning style. Every student is challenged to reach great heights.
  • We utilize a theme-based curriculum that engages children in authentic hands-on learning activities.
  • Children learn and grow in anenvironment in which a high priority is placed on respect and caring for one another.
