Our Philosophy

Your Child Means Everything To Us

img_philosophyGranite Bay Schoolhouse takes a love, respect, and kindness approach to early childhood education. At the core of our philosophy, we believe that each child is unique and therefore deserves individual attention and care. Because of their innate curiosity, it is up to us at GBSH to develop suitable activities based on our observations of each child’s individual needs.

Our curriculum reflects this comprehensive and highly individualized approach. Kids are divided into different groups during one part of the day in an effort to provide them with developmentally appropriate activities. Children of all ages play together in order to learn from one another – the younger ones as learners, the older kids as role models.

In addition to the basic skills required for a lifetime of learning, GBSH imparts values such as creativity, self-reliance, compassion and respect. In order to achieve this goal, it is essential for us to work closely with you, the parents, to provide the best possible situation for your children.
