Our Philosophy and Curriculum

Our Philosophy
Our philosophy is based on the knowledge that children learn through play. We respect each child’s uniqueness and allow them to grow at their own pace. We provide a safe and nurturing environment that allows children to develop in all areas: socially, emotionally,, cognitively, linguistically and physically. Our goal is to instill a joy in learning that each child will carry throughout their life.


The Curriculum
Pixie offers a home-away-from-home atmosphere that makes children feel comfortable and helps the explore freely. Within this safe environment we provide a developmental curriculum. This means that planning is done through a process of observing the children, evaluating their individual interests and needs and then planning the activities accordingly.

Activities are hands-on and include:

  • Science
  • Block Play
  • Creative Art
  • Cooking
  • language and Pre-Reading
  • Pre-Math
  • Dramatic Play
  • Music and Movement
  • Experiencing and caring for pets
  • Outside Play

The children are given opportunities for individual as well as group activies.
