OUR Philosophy in a rather large nutshell:
We believe in the integrity of each child, and that each child is a person in his/her own right.
We believe that each child has the right to achieve his/her full potential and that as teachers we must provide many and diverse opportunities to stimulate growth for physicality, language development, cognitive skills and emotional development.
We believe that each child best develops her/his full potential when s/he is part of a collaborative community of parents, teachers and peers that is committed to listen and value the individual perspective.
We believe that each child should be supported by the coordinated efforts of the adults to learn coping skills that will enable a healthy, non-biased, and productive life.
We believe that parents are the children's primary teachers and should be an integral part of the school, receive periodic reports on the child's progress, and that staff should be available to them for consultations on request.
We continue to study the philosophy of Reggio Emilia and observe children and document them at play to better understand how they learn from the environment, the teachers, their peers, their community, their culture and their own collective work and ideas.
