Our Mission is to foster active learning where children are protected and encouraged to explore and discover their world. Guided by a belief that children need to explore, we will offer a broad range of educational opportunities that will enrich each child’s social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and creative growth. Our goal is to establish strong relationships with families acknowledging the fact that parents are their child’s first teacher.

Learning through Exploration -
We believe that children have the right to learn within a context of exploration and play. We do everything we can to protect what we see as the essential elements of childhood- long stretches of uninterrupted time, lots of open-ended materials, real and meaningful work, and plenty of time in the natural world; all explored through play. These things create a context in which children can embark on the important work of exploring, and making sense of their world. Emergent Curriculum - Learning is child-directed. Rather than teachers choosing an area of investigation and giving the children isolated facts on a given subject, teachers work as researchers alongside the children. They carefully listen to the interests of the children, assisting the children in defining their questions as a place to begin investigations and express their knowledge. Hands-on, Active Learning - Research shows that children learn best through play, using their whole bodies in active learning. We honor this in our program, providing an abundance of learning opportunities through meaningful play.
