We touch children’s imaginations and kindle in them a sense of the limitless possibilities in their world.

Our children learn how to learn. They learn to focus their attention on an interest, and in doing so make a commitment to learning about something. Through this active engagement they discover the joy in learning. We recognize the importance of each child’s early experiences in the formation of an emotionally healthy, responsible adult. We see our role as nurturing the immense potential within each child, and supporting each child in the task of inner development. We believe that children’s intellectual growth is intertwined with their social and emotional development. Intellectual growth flourishes in a non-judgmental community where freedom for the individual is balanced with the needs of the group. In our classrooms children can choose to work independently or with classmates. As they develop more and more competencies, they quite naturally take on increased responsibility in the activities of the classroom.
