  • To give the child time to grow.
  • To help the child develop a strong sense of self – to allow him to “blossom from within.”

  • To provide movement experiences for development of physical and motor skills.
  • To promote growth in visual, auditory, and tactual perception … to sharpen the senses.
  • To provide an opportunity to learn and practice patterning of all kinds… visual, auditory, and kinesthetic.
  • To provide listening activities.
  • To provide many and varied opportunities for oral expression.
  • To build a foundation for sophisticated math concepts through manipulation of concrete materials.
  • To build a foundation for chemistry, physics and biology, through discovery and play with blocks, and natural materials such as water and sand.
  • To help the child relate to others socially and to be a part of a group.
  • To help the child develop problem-solving techniques.
  • To promote creative expression through art, dance, music, cooking, story telling.
  • To help the child develop the habit of success.
