We offer a project-based approach, inspired by the Reggio method of educating the very young.
Developed in Italy, this method respects the innate ability of children to explore and learn from the world around them.
Rather than give them answers, we guide them as they question, discover, test and exhibit ideas in their own individual ways.
Our curriculum is child-centered, in that students' interests and curiosity play a critical role in our lesson planning.
Teachers collaborate, and design lesson plans that focus on what children are interested in while making sure to cover all disciplines in the course of their exploration, from math to science to music, art, drama and language.
We feel this approach teaches children to explore topics in great detail and better equips them to become life-long learners who enjoy the educational process.

The Compass School is awesome! The teachers there are so great with my sons: patient, creative and truly care about making their days exciting, fun and safe. The facility is always clean and warm with good size classrooms and a lovely outdoor play area. Projects are child-inspired which we love and the teachers have a great philosophy about child respect which really works with our high-energy boys. My oldest always comes home with new questions for me that leads to more home learning and projects! I recommend this school to anyone in the area. Keep doing what you're doing Compass!

Amazing toddler teachers! They are simply the best and do not get enough credit for what they do. Unfortunately if I were to give out stars for the director and administration it would be 1.
