The school invites you to learn how its teachers not only make learning joyful for young children, but also design curriculum and create a social environment with the goal of optimizing the development of hearts and minds during these important years.
“We understand what it is like to be a child: from that expertise, we have created a warm yet stimulating environment that invites children to develop their skills; discover what piques their interest; and find a home in their curiosity and imagination, which are pivotal to learning,” said Head of School Maureen Murphy.
“During their time in our classrooms, children are also taught the important values of respect and care for oneself, for others and for the world beyond its campus.”
The school aims to develop in children a strong foundation in academics, including problem solving, while developing in equal measure a belief in their own capabilities to master new skills, a deep respect for the unique gifts of others, an appreciation for creative expression, and a love of learning.
Teachers at the school reach children through a combination of evidence-based pedagogical techniques and a thorough grasp of their needs at each stage of development.
By the end of the school day, children are meant leave with a growing sense of confidence, a better understanding of what it means to be a friend, and eager to seek out new knowledge and skills. These habits and skills serve children well far beyond their time at the school.
Devoted to early childhood education for more than 55 years, The Children’s School’s mission has always been to take children and their innate potential seriously.
