To Nurture Learning We:

  • Provide a supportive, safe learning environment to encourage discovery, question-asking and experimentation.


  • Provide sensory experiences with natural objects, artifacts, outdoor play, cooking activities and art materials for students to utilize all five senses.


  • Develop cognitive growth and motor skills through guided play both indoors and out


  • Develop problem-solving skills through hands-on games and activities


  • Introduce language through songs, stories, dramatic play, and family style meals


  • Cultivate social skills and positive self-image through group play and cooperative learning across ages


  • Encourage family involvement to help students appreciate the wisdom of their first teachers —their parents/guardian


  • Appreciate diversity of living things and celebrate individuality of children, families, and community
