Garden of Wonder

Welcome to The Garden of Wonder, where we look at all the children as the amazing individuals they are by taking their knowledge level and interests as a basis for the development of a fun and creative learning environment. Helping children to be curious and excited about learning is a primary aspect of our curriculum. We believe in a strong school to family connection that fosters communication and participation.

The social emotional competency of young children: building peer relationships, problem solving, understanding emotions, and building self-esteem, for example, is also an important focus area of development in our classroom. We believe in teaching the whole child. The Garden of Wonder Classroom is a balance of structured cognitive development and exploratory play where the love and wonder of nature and outdoor play is highlighted.
