The experiences and knowledge young children bring to school, combined with their natural curiosity, are the foundations for learning in the primary and elementary grades. Our program is designed to help develop children's potentials. The emphasis is on learning experiences which help children make connections between existing knowledge and new skills and information.
Our curriculum is approved by the NY State Board of Regents. All subject area outcomes are clearly defined, but learning is linked across these subject area boundaries. Classroom experiences are designed to be mutually reinforcing. In this manner, children see the connections between skills learned and their importance in real life.
