Second Street Childrens School

  • Second Street Children's School is planned to meet individual, cultural, and age appropriate developmental needs of all the children.
  • Teachers engage in collaborative planning to ensure that a variety of appropriate choices are available for children each day.
  • Children have the opportunities to run, climb, play quietly, chase one another, read, be read to, paint, write, dance, balance, swing, and imagine.
  • They have time to grow, time to roam, to explore, to experiment, to discover, to play and most of all, time to be a child.
  • We believe, as Piaget suggested, that "play is the work of children".
  • Teachers are always available to answer children's questions, to help them solve problems, to snuggle, to give or to receive a hug.
