  We believe that children learn by being nurtured through, love, discipline and reasoning, by being exposed to problem-solving situations and by becoming aware of themselves and the world around them. The purpose of the school is to the help children feel comfortable in a situation outside of the home, to learn to function in a group, to be able to follow instructions and to get along with other children We use teacher-directed activities that allow for children's creativity while providing materials in the classroom that allow the child to have new experiences and develop problem solving skills. We provide opportunities for children to develop physically, emotionally and socially.
