What is the school's philosophy?
Dayspring honors the WHOLE child and provides developmentally-appropriate curriculum activities that address all the learning domains (physical, intellectual, social, and emotional). Our goal is for children to develop a life-long LOVE of learning! We want our children to be self-confident and successful. We are preparing them for success in kindergarten and beyond.
What is "Inquiry Learning?"
Inquiry Learning, like play-based programs, acknowledges that children learn best when using their natural curiosity and exploring various hands-on learning materials. It provides for open-ended questions so that the child’s intellectual development is expanded, and critical thinking skills are enhanced. Inquiry Learning builds on information the child has and leads to a deeper understanding of the information content. It supports play as an important medium for brain development.
Are parents involved in the program?
Yes, the program structure allows various options for parents to volunteer in the classroom. Parent volunteers are required to have a TB test, and a training session is offered for parent volunteers.
How much are tuition fees?
There is a $75 non-refundable application fee. Tuition rates vary depending on your child’s program. For more information, see Enrollment.
