Our Program Philosophy


At Tower Hill school,

Our philosophy is developmental; we aim to meet each child’s individual needs.  Small child to adult ratios, of approximately one adult for every five children, provide our students with ample opportunities for hands-on learning activities.  Independence and self-confidence are developed through age-appropriate activities in a warm and nurturing classroom setting.  Our guiding vision is to provide a strong educational, emotional and social foundation in a caring, supportive environment.  We strive to make learning an adventure and to cultivate each child’s natural curiosity into a lifelong enthusiasm for learning.  And because we believe that family involvement is essential in early education, parents of Tower Hill School students are expected to participate actively in every aspect of their child’s schooling, from working in the classroom (co-oping) to serving on committees that aid in the day-to-day running of the school.
