We value and respect the needs, languages, and cultures of all students, families, staff, and the community we serve. Our instructional program includes a setting which develops literacy skills such as oral language, listening, speaking, pre-writing, phonemic awareness, vocabulary development, comprehension, critical thinking and problem solving. Our children become self-directed and self-reliant while participating in a planned indoor/outdoor instructional program. We believe that all students have a right to learn in a developmentally appropriate and challenging educational program where we integrate learning opportunities with high expectations.
We are a Nature Explore School so our emphasis is for children to connect with nature on a daily basis and to enhance their creativity. Children’s experiences with nature encourage them to cooperate and problem solve in a natural environment where they are engaged in hands-on learning. Our outdoor space has plants, trees, and grass, as well as a wheeled toy area to ride tricycles. During outdoor learning time you will see our students building with natural materials, sorting pine cones and shells, playing in the sand, painting, playing with water, planting, making music with our Marimba, and riding tricycles around the track.
