School Notes

  • Our mission is to create an emotionally-safe learning environment where children feel empowered to explore ideas, skills, and an understanding of self; and to inspire these children with a sense of responsibility towards others and towards making an impact on their world. Our mission is shaped by:Jewish values; An appreciation and respect for the child`s natural stages of development ;The belief that children build knowledge through personal experiences; The recognition that the years of early childhood possess within them the capacity for life-long habits, behaviors and attitudes; The belief that each child possesses a unique inner voice that needs to be heard and encouraged by both the child and by those around him. We work collaboratively - our children, their families, and our teachers towards meeting this goal.
