Back to Basics, less is more, keep it simple and connect within are ways to describe our approach at Chapel School. We believe that children learn best through play, which encompasses social skills, motor skills and is the basic foundation for all academic skills. Programs like Yoga, Brain Gym, Chapel Time, Music and Mindfulness also allow them to become deep thinkers, to be with and work through their emotions and to stay in the present moment. Our classrooms have become very basic and simple to allow for imagination and creativity to soar. Simplicity in our approach, which again encompasses play, leaves room for children to discover more about the world around them in a way that works for them. Our extended time outdoors adds to play time, allows them to take risks, work on social skills, learn about the beauty around them, and gain sensory experiences that young developing bodies seek during the early childhood years. We also believe that supporting parents, also supports the students enrolled at Chapel School. We offer parent workshops, assistance with Early Intervention and/or school district evaluations and guidance with challenging behaviors. Our work with families has an overall goal of allowing the family to see the joy in being with and raising children and we see each child and family that we encounter as a blessing to our community.
