Our mission is to provide a joyful, play-based learning environment that helps children develop their unique selves and their capacity to connect with others. We are a school community where teachers, parents, and children respect each other, nurture each other, and learn from each other in an atmosphere of true cooperation.

Our vision is that children who attend our school emerge from a deeply enriching experience eager to learn, embracing of others, and empowered to share their gifts with the world.
