VISION:  Engage children as active learners through developmentally appropriate practice.

MISSION:  Through collaboration with families, districts, and preschool staff, we develop an educational environment that supports and promotes the social-emotional, physical and cognitive development of the child.​

We believe…
  • Children learn best through play and hands on experiences
  • The image of the child is one of potential, curiosity and interest in constructing their learning.
  • Teachers are partners in children's learning. Teachers listen to children's ideas and provide occasions within the environment for discovery and learning.
  • Children's explorations through project work provide opportunities for the development of higher level thinking skills as well as basic skills and new skills.
  • The documentation of children's activities makes children aware that what they say and do is valued. Documentation traces the history of the classroom and provides opportunities for children, teachers and families to revisit children's work.
  • Parents are valued and play an active role in their child's learning experience. Family involvement and communication is essential.
  • Teachers are life-long learners. The staff continues to grow through opportunities for collegial dialogue and study.
