Our goal to build and strengthen friendships will enable the children to discover their strengths and will allow for self-exploration through the child-directed curriculum.

School Philosophy:

As a nation our most important resource is children.  Through the wonder of a happy, supportive childhood a child can gather the tools he or she will need to function as a productive adult in our society.  In many situations the job of providing this environment is taken on by the parents.  But an increasingly large number of children are turning to teachers and administrators to fill these roles.  Children require the opportunity to grow at their own pace, therefore, a curriculum should remain flexible as well as provide basic knowledge on which they will be able to build learning skills for a lifetime.  As a licensed school we are responsible for launching students' academic and social careers.  Through our hands-on curriculum, social experiences, field trips, intergenerational activities, and physical environment we are prepared to meet the needs of our students and give them the tools to become successful students as well as valuable resources to our society.
