Our philosophy at Serendipity is to open the eyes and hearts of children to the wonder and discovery of learning. Our goal is to set each child up for success and to help prepare them for the challenges ahead. Our desire is to foster a positive sense of “self” by giving each student opportunities to practice making decisions, emphasize the good things they accomplish and acknowledge their unique gifts and abilities. We feel it is important to validate their ideas, emotions and feelings, encourage them to be considerate and respectful of others and to follow defined boundaries and rules. We feel that the school environment not only needs to be safe and nurturing, but also rich in color, dimension and diversity.
