Grand Avenue provides a positive environment and a stimulating curriculum fostering children’s creative and intellectual abilities as appropriate for their developmental stage. Our goal is to nurture self-esteem and independence and to set the stage for future learning through a positive first experience at school. Curricular elements should be scientifically proven to be appropriate and successful for children of this age. Children’s social development is emphasized through play and the companionship of their peers. Learning should be enjoyable, and emphasize hands-on experiences, in a bright, open, well-equipped classroom.
