Teachers provide a learning environment where children are supported, loved, and valued for who they are and who they can become through experience and guidance from their teachers and classmates.  We prepare an environment where children can develop at their own rate, enjoying every moment of discovery along the way.  By allowing them to explore their world with hands-on experiences and exploration, their senses are fulfilled and completely supported.

 

Children seek to meet their academic, social, emotional, and physical needs through work and play within a classroom community. Our experienced staff brings many talents to our program, including art, music and movement, Spanish instruction, cooking, and outdoor education.  Teachers follow each child in learning, observing and guiding them to higher abstract levels of understanding themselves and their important work ahead as citizens of the world.
