Creating Life Long Learners
Inspiring students to be excited to learn and explore is the main component of our developed curriculum and approach.  Creating a community of life long learners is not only essential for individual success but also for the success of our world.  We, as early educators, are molding future presidents, educators, artists, and doctors to name a few. We strongly believe that the desire to learn and grow should not stop when we are grown but we should continue to challenge and better ourselves throughout life.  Creating an environment where education is viewed as an exciting component of daily life will instill pride within each child molding a life long learner.  Students are encouraged to ask questions, observe, explore, and analyze through exciting, age appropriate and hands on activities.
Focus on the Arts
Research studies have shown that by exposing children to performing and visual arts will help them to improve their critical thinking skills and develop self confidence. Teachers recognize that the arts are an essential part of every child's development and learning. Federal legislation, In the No Child Left Behind Act, identifies instruction in the arts as a core subject area. Educational research also shows that hands-on arts activities aid in brain development and help children learn and excel in other curricular areas such as reading, math, language arts, and science.  Children naturally respond to music, dance, art and drama. Now is the time to expose your child to many different experiences. Our approach takes into account the expressive needs and the developmental abilities of young children.
Laboratories for Learning
Laboratories for Learning are our unique approach to the learning environment.  Our hands on Laboratories involve students in a variety of cross curriculum activities in both an indoor and outdoor setting.  Students are engaged in a multitude of activities that enhance developmental progress and instill a joy for learning that will remain with each student throughout life.  Students are encouraged to explore with materials creating interesting and important learning experiences.
