Who you serve:
WNS promotes the emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual and physical development of each child by using a play-based age-appropriate curriculum that is loosely structured. A caring environment is provided by the teachers through guidance and love given throughout their daily schedule of activities, and by the family members who are encouraged to participate in school celebrations, activities and, of course, co-oping.
Child-initiated play is greatly encouraged at WNS. Supported by Piaget’s premise that children learn best from activities they plan and carry out themselves, children are allowed and encouraged to make decisions and solve problems on their own in the classrooms. We focus on independent activities and processes and believe children learn best by experiencing their world through direct, hands-on activities.
