About Us

We believe that more learning in Kindergarten will occur if the student has a desire to learn, has positive feelings concerning his/her school environment, and succeeds in his/her work. A comfortable atmosphere of caring and acceptance established by the school is considered important, so that each student is encouraged to strive for excellence and to be creative. An aesthetically pleasing environment with a view to appreciation of beauty and order enhances this. Each Preschool student’s possibility of success increases when he/she works at the appropriate level of difficulty and senses positive expectations from his/her teachers.
