Our educational philosophy is grounded in the richness of the individual diversity and respect for all people. We understand learning to be an exciting and lifelong process and to include all aspects of the whole child: physical, emotional, social, and intellectual. We promote a safe environment where the curiosity and quest for learning of all persons - including children, family, faculty, and staff - are encouraged, supported, and challenged.
