We believe that the best way to foster a love for learning in children is to provide a hands-on approach of discovery, experimentation and meaningful play. This approach allows children to learn at their own pace in a nurturing, supportive environment.
Little Pilgrim School provides a developmental environment for preschool children to gain a greater sense of self worth, respect for others, and an appreciation of their world. Using hands-on activities that are open-ended, we encourage the development of social, emotional, physical, creative, and intellectual growth. This creates a framework for life long learning.
