Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. -William Butler Yeats

Our philosophy is demonstrated through DAP (Developnmentally Appropriate Practices). The three core considerations are as follows:

1. To understand child development and learning, to know what is individually appropriate and to know what is culturally important.

2. We use multiple theories to provide the most positive, effective, and efficient teaching styles.

3. Teachers promote learning by applying a variety of child development theories. For example, teachers apply behaviorst (Bandura), psychoanalystic (Erikson), humanistic (Maslow), constructivist (piaget), contextual (Bronfenbrenner), and other theorists to cater to the child's personality, learning style, interests, and needs.
