Our Philosophy

SMPCW provides and recognizes partnership with families as an integral part of the community. To support each person’s growth, we work toward individualizing our program for children and families. We acknowledge that each person brings different needs, skills, interests, backgrounds and life experiences. 

We believe adults and children learn best through active participation with their environment and with others.

We embrace a hand’s-on approach to learning for all ages.

We emphasize the value of parent education for the positive development of the family. We recognize the family to be the most important influence in the child’s life and work to support the growth of parenting skills and knowledge.

We support a holistic perspective of human growth and development. 

Our curriculum is based on promoting children’s social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and creative development.

We dedicate ourselves to promoting anti-bias attitudes and practices as we celebrate all cultures, ages, roles, and human diversities.

Mission Statement

We are dedicated to sharing the adventure of early learning and parent education within a nurturing and diverse community of families.


A school which supports our families, instills a sense of community, embodies the spirit of learning, while having fun and giving back to the community.
