Our Commitments
Our Beliefs about Children: While it is difficult to encapsulate all we believe about children and their development into a few sentences, we...

  • COMMIT to and value the active engagement of children, as we believe all children must have opportunities to collaborate, grow, play, and explore.

  • COMMIT to and value the development of life-long attitudes, necessary for responsible citizenship, such as: empathy, enthusiasm, respect, open-mindedness, curiosity, risk taking, creativity, cooperation, responsibility, and reflectiveness.
  • COMMIT to and value the notion that each child, with their unique talents and gifts, has the potential to positively impact the world.
  • COMMIT to and value the use of research-based instructional strategies as we make decisions as adults in the school community.
Our Beliefs about our Parent Community: Parents and families are welcome collaborators in school and encouraged to participate in many ways, for example: volunteering, support their child's development, conferencing, family education trainings, and the like.  School staff members strive to assist parents in the development and support of skills that are conductive to learning.  There is a strong link between parents and teachers in partnering and organizing for learning.  Together, parents and educators participate in effective and on-going communication with regards to preschool and child learning.  Finally, parents are valued and included in the decision-making process for school.
Our Beliefs about Educators: We collaborate as a team to establish trust, take risks, and disperse a wide net of leadership in order to meet school goals and stay true to our values and commitments.  This is achieved through open communication, a collaborative culture, and involvement in decision making processes.  Additionally, we are engaged in learning and professional development, which promotes research-based and effective instruction for all children.
Our Beliefs about Partnerships: Because we understand that people who know innovation share with others, we seek to not only partner with those who can help us, but also those whom we can help.  We realize that we can't reach our goals alone, so we believe in developing meaningful partnerships with parents, businesses, universities, our community, and other diverse partners to create a culture of innovation.
