We are on a mission to provide an experience that will lay a foundation for the rest of a child's life. Our goal at Ethos is to nurture capable, life-long learners that are highly valued, contributing members of their communities. Our programs offer a safe environment, holistic educational approach, and a sense of community for children ages 6 weeks to five years.
Our educational approach allows each child to explore and develop at their own pace. Our holistic curriculum includes areas in language, early literacy, early mathematics, science inquiry and knowledge, understanding ourselves and the world, creative arts, physical development, social/emotional development and practical life skills on a daily basis.
Our teaching approach is rooted in social constructivist theories - such as those from Montessori, Reggio, and Waldorf - that encourage children as individuals to explore, investigate and manipulate objects, and ideas, under the supportive guidance of highly qualified teachers. Development comes through self-determined testing and questioning of different situations. Ideas and opinions are actively invited and valued. Alongside more traditional learning domains such as language, early literacy, physical development, mathematics and science, we engage our children daily with culture and diversity, and by helping them understand their sense of self and fostering social and emotional skills. Our goal is to nurture young people with an ability to learn for themselves, about themselves, and to empathize with others.
