The goal of our curriculum is to provide developmentally appropriate experiences in which children can learn about themselves, others, and the world with the support of respectful and responsive adults. The environment encourages exploration, experimentation, individualism and discovery while supporting emergent literacy and math skills, science, music and art. Parents participate in two parent/teacher conferences throughout the year but easily connect with the teachers anytime.dsc_0105
