Philosophy - We believe that the early years are the most critical part of your child's entire school experience. Our mission is to provide a safe and caring environment, one that encourages intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development of your child. Our teachers strive to provide learning experiences and guidance that capitalize on your child's expanding needs and interests as well as their increasing maturity.
Curriculum - Our program provides a balance of challenging activities. Through participation in language, math, cooking, hula, music/movement, arts & crafts, dramatic play, nature experiences, gardening, excursions, and swimming (K-3rd), children develop their skills in all appropriate development areas. We believe that this establishes a foundation for future learning.
In the primary grades, we seek to establish a strong academic foundation in reading, language arts, math, spelling, social studies, science, health, and physics education, music, art, and creative drama.
