Our Philosophy

Our vision is to sustain a positive, strong, and diverse learning community where students grow as people and as learners. SKCEE is a place where staff and parents work together for the development of the whole child, fostering a love of learning and global citizenship in our students.


We are a learning community committed to ensuring each child reaches their potential through rigorous and differentiated learning. We value relationships between staff, students, and families.

Our Educational Philosophy

Our educational philosophy is built on a strong foundation of the best practices established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. We balance child-initiated play-based learning with the academic focus of whole-group and small group instruction. Our philosophy is also rooted in the best practices of meaningful, active learning and individualizing teaching methods to each child. We believe in educating the whole child, and know that what we teach and how we teach are of equal importance.
