Our philosophy encompasses the belief that children should have experiences in the classroom community which allows each child to explore the environment and utilize his/her individual abilities. Child-centered is the approach we take to learning and development to ensure experiences are individualized and responsive to each child’s cues and desires to learn. Teachers strive to nurture a peaceful environment which encourages each child to think independently and creatively, so that later in life they will be wise decision makers.

Teachers support children emotionally and engage in socially appropriate behavior including rich language exchanges. Relationships and experiences with trusted staff are the basis for all learning. We create safe, interesting and intimate settings in which children have time and opportunity to establish and sustain long-term, secure and trusting relationships.
