We know that each child has his or her own rate of learning, therefore, we avoid a competitive atmosphere and instead try to challenge each child individually, at their own pace. Children retain and understand concepts when they have been able to actively take part; therefore we believe in learning by doing and self-discovery. We feel that children learn best in a comfortable, non-pressured atmosphere. Much time and energy is put into creating a feeling of comfort and security for each child within their school environment.
We help children learn many foundational skills. However, more important that any achievement, we hope to create a school and classroom environment which gives your child an enthusiasm and passion for learning, which is a prerequisite for success in future schooling. Staff and teachers plan take a team approach in helping meet the needs of each child from social, emotional, physical, or intellectual growth.
We also offer several extracurricular activities during school hours, which include:
- SOCCER SHOTS on Monday afternoons
- HULA LESSONS on Wednesday afternoons with Aunty Vernalani Keb
- UKULELE CLASS on Thursday afternoons with Uncle Nate Mata
