The mission of our school is to nurture the overall development of each child physically, emotionally, socially, cognitively and creatively in a nurturing, developmentally appropriate environment.
We believe that:
Children learn through exploration and discovery. Children are active learners. They need to explore, create, and be involved in concrete, hands-on, multi-sensory child- and teacher- directed activities in order to develop and learn to an optimum level.
Children need nurturing, empathetic teachers who work towards creating individual relationships with each child.
The positive interaction of teachers and parents working together creates a climate in which children learn and grow best.
The special role of Earthplace Nursery School is making the connection for children that we are all an important part of the world of nature.
