Kay School Philosophy

From birth, young children are fully engaged in learning. They respond to touch, movement and sounds before they recognize speech. They recognize and explore sounds before they speak. They scribble and draw pictures before they form letters. They sing and dance and act out stories before they learn to read.

At Kay School we celebrate children’s capacity to learn, their excitement about learning, and their natural ability to do so through exploration and play. It is our mission to create and nurture an environment for learning that will help children grow to become academically successful, and socially adept; active and curious learners; aware of their capacity to imagine and create; caring of themselves, fellow students, and their environment; strong innovators and skilled problem-solvers. Early childhood is when the foundation for learning is formed. Our curriculum is interactive, with content that is developmentally appropriate, and guided by the children’s interests.
