JWS consists of a community of learners, including children, teachers, and families, where all are welcome, work together, and are respected. Teachers facilitate the learning process by providing children with opportunities to explore developmentally appropriate activities and materials, and by allowing them to make decisions in accordance with their own interests. Teachers and parents work as partners to support and cultivate each child’s development.

Our Program

Bringing out the best in every child

Children’s natural curiosity opens a world of opportunity for learning. At JWS, children embark on a cycle of wonder, exploration, and discovery. Learning is personalized to each individual and supported by highly qualified, caring teachers. Our classrooms are designed with young children in mind and allow for self-directed play and learning while also offering opportunities for group interaction. When interest and spontaneous play drive a child’s learning, every day is a thrilling adventure; this is the core of the JWS curriculum.
