The Purpose Behind Our Philosophy

Inclusion

Together, children achieve their learning potential.

The goal of an inclusive education system is to provide all children with the most appropriate learning environments and opportunities for them to best achieve their potential. Inclusion is about ensuring that each child belongs and receives a quality education/experience. An inclusive education system is best realized when leadership is shared between school, home and family. Preschools reflect the attitudes, beliefs and health of the communities they serve and must be equipped to reflect inclusive practice.

Learning Through Play

Through play children explore their world.

Through play children explore their world, discover how to get along with others, test their skills and muscles, try out new ideas, and feel competent enough to try different activities (i.e. we utilize a multisensory teaching model to enhance learning). Curiosity, Self-esteem, Language, Problem Solving, Cooperation, Endurance are just a few of the many kinds of learning involved in play. Adults can encourage children to play in ways that are valuable by setting the stage for them and, when appropriate, extending the children’s ideas during play.
