The philosophy which drives the preschool is that children learn through a play-based program planned by staff knowledgeable in the field of child development.
* The philosophy sees the child as continually developing in all areas including physical, social-emotional, cognitive and creative
* We see each child as a unique individual and respect and respond to their individual needs.
* The child's family is seen as an integral part of the program
and they participate in all areas of the program.
"Families are the well spring that creates and nurtures the children in our classrooms. When working closely with families we help to foster their sense of belonging and their confidence. We help to strengthen parents' capacity to support their children over a lifetime." (by Gayle Fischer and Bridget Murray, "When Teachers Reflect")
