Philosophy

It is our belief that the early school years are the time to imbue children with a love of learning to set a precedent for a lifetime of positive school experiences.

We offer child-centered, developmentally appropriate education in a loving supportive school community. Our goal is to create a community of learners who are intelligent, capable, and kind. We will model and teach respectful communication and problem solving using the language of non-violent communication.

Awareness of limited natural resources and respect for the natural world is taught by utilizing eco-friendly supplies, minimizing use of limited resources, recycling and composting. We believe our future depends upon our integration of culture, creativity, community, and ecology.

We maintain low teacher student ratios to insure that each student receives the attention needed to develop socially and emotionally and to grow as a learner.
