Our Classroom Experience

Our teachers plan a widely varied daily program to accommodate parents’ preference for a friendly, relaxed atmosphere without regimentation. Activities that encourage self-expression, creativity and teacher planned projects are a prominent part of the child’s morning. Large motor activities, music, art, math, and science are all components of the daily schedule. The children are taken on field trips and outdoor excursions.

The staff works toward providing a positive, accepting environment for all students. The staff provides regular reminders, positive reinforcement of the established guidelines, school rules and limits that the children understand. Providing the students with a variety of activities suited to their interests and needs will minimize unacceptable behavior in the classroom.
