Our Core Beliefs:

-that children are capable and competent and can be trusted to  participate in creating their own learning. 

-that our classroom and play yard spaces are the '3rd teacher' and should offer rich and varied opportunities to explore, problem solve and create.

-that play is the mechanism by which children learn.

-that children and teachers need opportunities to represent their thoughts, reflections and ideas about what they are learning.

-that learning takes time and children need opportunities to reflect on their work, and to revisit and repeat experiences

as part of the learning process.

-that parents and families are an important part of the learning environment and contribute to the learning process.
