Philosophy

Holistic, Well-Rounded Child Development

Our focus is holistic, well-rounded child development. We believe children are natural explorers with special gifts and strengths (their superpower). Our philosophy is grounded in research from people like Jean Piaget, Lev Vygotsky, Maria Montessori, and Reggio Emilia. We offer a curriculum that meets the child developmentally not only chronologically. It is important to us to meet a child’s needs socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually through hands-on play and project -based activities that foster curiosity.

Children are inherently curious about their environment and want to make their own choices. We provide freedom and opportunity of choice while still in a structured environment by stimulating their mind and helping them grow using art, science, math, language, technology and love!

Curriculum and
Language Immersion

A Creative, Engaging and Challenging Experience

We utilize multiple resources for planning a creative, engaging and challenging experience for your child. It is important to us for our teachers to have the support they need to be able to provide a classroom atmosphere for your child to explore, learn, and engage.

Using a blended curriculum, the teachers plan around weekly themes and developmental goals for the child based on observations and individual assessments.

Our curriculum includes a portion of the day dedicated to a foreign language. Because children’s brains are wired to easily learn new languages we have found that exposing them to another language greatly enhances their growth and development. Some parents worry that their children might become confused when exposed to multiple languages, and believe that this delays the speech of a child. However, a study done by the University of Washington revealed that babies are able to differentiate between two languages even before they can speak

Offering Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Mandarin, our language curriculum immerses your child in the culture of the language you choose through hearing and speaking the language, learning about the culture and the country. The languages we offer are some of the most spoken in the world.
