Mission Statement:

Photo of Private School in Staten Island, New York CityThe program cares for the child as a whole so that there is also emphasis placed on nurturing emotional growth, while sparking excitement and enthusiasm in learning endeavors.

Children work in small groups based upon their abilities rather than arbitrary chronological grouping rules. This ensures each child being able to work at this own pace and reach his own potential through opportunities for critical thinking and problem solving. Small grouping by ability allows us to respond to individual needs.

Statement of Philosophy:
* We adhere to NAEYC's Commitment to children
* We appreciate childhood as a unique and valuable stage of the human life cycle
* We base our work with children on knowledge of child development
* We appreciate and support the close ties between the child and family
* We recognize that children are best understood in the context of family, culture and society
* We respect the dignity, worth and uniqueness of each individual
* We help children and adults achieve their full potential in the context of relationships that are based upon trust, respect, and positive regard.

The Right Start in Life - A Good Education:

The learning habits a child establishes early in life can also make a difference in how well he does later in school. A good education, such as the one provided by Oakdale Academy fosters such qualities as initiative, concentration, self-discipline, and persistence in completing a task, responsibility, creative self- expression, study habits, research skills, and a love of learning. All these qualities are valuable in forming good study habits. The longer a child is able to reinforce his good habits and learning skills, the higher the probability that he will internalize them and make them a permanent part of his development.

A basic inquiry / discovery approach to learning is utilized in all components of the program. This encourages children to use all their senses while working, and to become keen observers and critical thinkers. It promotes a classroom climate that fosters the full academic potential of each child, permitting them to broaden and expand their repertoire of skills and knowledge. Children enrolled in our elementary program take standardized tests at the state level, and parents receive scores, test interpretations and results.
