We Believe...

  • Children learn best when their physical and emotional needs are met.
  • It is critical for student learning to have a home-school environment which fosters self esteem.
  • Partial participation is preferable to non-participation.
  • All students can learn and achieve academically.
  • Students learn best when meaningful instruction is carried over from the school into the home.
  • Meaningful instruction is not limited to school settings; it also takes place in natural environments where students learn and practice skills in real-life settings.
