WE BELIEVE IN ...
We believe every child deserves their teacher’s equal focus and care. We want children to know their questions and ideas will be heard.
We believe that children learn best when they are exposed to a variety of teaching methods that spark curiosity and a love of learning.
We believe that a child’s best self shines when they feel valued and safe. We want children to face new challenges with confidence.
We believe children need bright, engaging learning spaces. We want children to be able to move, learn and play in kid-friendly comfort.
We believe in forming a close partnership between the Head of School, teachers, parents and children that is built on mutual trust.
We believe that education should address the needs of the whole child. We want children to learn to relax their bodies and focus their minds.
Pinecrest School acknowledges that we gather and learn on the land of the Piscataway people. As our school community stands against racism, hate, and injustice we will work to learn about and share knowledge of Indigenous peoples and cultures, past and present. This work adds value to our community, assists with positive systemic change, and strengthens us all.
