Our Philosophy

We respect all children by treating them as capable intelligent individuals, setting and meeting individual goals based on their own interests and providing a safe and nurturing environment for exploration and discovery.

We Believe Every Child:

  • Is a capable and competent being
  • Is a unique and complex learner
  • Is deserving of an environment that nurtures the whole child.
  • Learns through child-initiated, child-directed, educator-supported play
  • Is a social being who learns through the development of relationships and collaboration with peers and adults
  • Is by nature a creative and curious researcher and learns best through hands-on exploration that is relevant to his or her experiences
  • Deserves trust, respect, and meaningful relationships to facilitate confidence and healthy risk taking
  • Has diverse strengths rooted in his or her family’s unique culture, heritage, language and beliefs.
  • Is a subject of rights, a whole citizen from birth, worthy of citizenship in the world
  • Possesses hundreds of languages with which to describe their beliefs and experiences, and with which to express their learning. To respect and respond to cultural diversity
