  • Teachers are researchers alongside children:  encouraging their sense of wonder through provocative and curated environments, observing their play patterns, urges, & interests, and expanding on their ideas through the lens of developmentally appropriate preschool practice.
  • Teachers are adventure leaders in the great outdoors:  leading expeditions to various urban green spaces, providing tools for exploration of natural beauty and phenomenon, and guiding children to be stewards of the environment.
  • Teachers are responsive caregivers: showing regard for the student perspective, connecting with children when they’re experiencing big feelings and behaviors, and forming relationships with family partners.
