Philosophy

Educational Philosophy

Our educational philosophy is constructivist and play-based at its core, and our curriculum, which is often emergent and always exploratory and engaging, is rooted in developmentally-appropriate practice. Here, we see learning as an active social endeavor and educate all aspects of your child: social, spiritual, cognitive, physical, and emotional. Our teachers understand the stages of child development and ground their instruction in best practice and research. But even more important than the books they read or conferences they attend is how they’ll make your child feel: known. Each student has significance and importance in the classroom, including the time and space to construct, build, and tinker; the room to make his/her own choices; and the chance to shine, imagine, and grow.
