"Do not teach a child to learn by force or harshness but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius in each."

Plato

"Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty."

Albert Einstein

"We shouldn't teach great books; we should teach a love of reading."

B.F. Skinner

Philosophy

We believe that children are active participants in their learning process and develop the desire and motivation to explore, learn, and achieve when they are frequently encouraged and praised.

We recognize each child's individual learning style and are dedicated to helping children find, use, and strengthen their unique interests, skills, and talents.

We value play as an integral part in children's learning and offer an environment that fosters curiosity and creativity through play.

Our comprehensive curriculum is enriched with stimulating materials, experiences and teaching methods that are grounded in current research and principles of child development.

We are guided by and rely on current research and best practice guidelines to optimize the learning environment for each child.

We recognize the vital role that parents play in the development of their child and encourage parents to actively engage in their child's learning experience.
