.....education starts at birth.The first years bring “windows of opportunity” that open a child’s life
forever. The greatest gift we can give a child is a preschool education at a high-quality school.
.....in a progressive approach to learning. We believe that effective early learning programs
tend to borrow ‘best practice’ and take guiding principles from a number of models. There are
many early learning philosophies that exist and new ones keep emerging based on new
research and findings. We believe that an effective curriculum takes from a range of
philosophies and keeps changing to incorporate new ones. Only then can children have a
complete and balanced experience that caters for all areas of development. Our curriculum
uses the Montessori philosophy as the foundation and combines it with aspects of other
impressive programs, such as the Waldorf Philosophy and the Reggio Emilia Approach .......
thus making it a "Progressive Montessori"
.....Children teach themselves and at the same time they like some level of organization and
discipline. Children have natural tendencies toward exploration, hard work, creativity, and
communication. Our goal is to create a learning environment, which feeds the evolving
passions of the children.
......that at the early childhood stage children are entirely given over to their physical
surroundings, absorbing their world through their senses and responding through imitation.
Therefore adults concerned with young children, including parents,teachers, and
caregivers,have a responsibility to create an environment worthy of unquestioning imitation.
......art is a very important learning tool. It allows children to express themselves and at the
same time develops their creativity. Just as art is an integral part of a curriculum we believe
an artistic and aesthetically pleasing physical environment is equally key in early learning.
......each child is an unique individual who takes an active role in his or her own learning and
development. The deep respect demonstrated toward children and the quality of the
relationships between adults and children is a key premise in designing our program.
......your child is very special to you .......and us.
