The early years of a child's life are the most important in his or her developmental growth. Successful school experiences should lead the child to feelings of self-worth and importance. Our program objectives focus on intellectual and language development, sensory-motor development, social and emotional growth, and the attainment of a sense of well-being.
A balanced curriculum is one that emphasizes the development of the total child. Our students are grouped according to their social maturity and developmental levels so that individual needs can best be met. Individualized instruction maximizes individual potential. A continual evaluation of each child's progress allows us to provide a realistic yet challenging curriculum.
