Our school is guided by the Quaker principals of nonviolence, respect for the individual, and by the spirit of Quaker Meeting which allows what is best in each person to be affirmed and nurtured.  Our program is designed to meet the needs of the children and to help them grow and develop at their own pace and in their own way.

In an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance, we foster self-esteem and positive social relationships while providing an intellectually stimulating experience.  Each child participates in activities that lead to the joy of observing, exploring, experimenting, discovering and creating.

Our curriculum is based on our current understanding of how children develop and learn. We observe and get to know each child, so that we can respond to individual needs as well as the needs of the group as a whole. Our program provides a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the social/emotional, cognitive/linguistic, and physical development of each child. Through the mediums of play, music, art, language and the outdoors, the children have opportunities to understand the world they live in, socialize with others, and express emotions. We listen closely so that the children learn that what they say is important. We incorporate the specific guidelines recommended by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and the guidebooks The Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers and Twos and The Creative Curriculum for Preschool.
