Pacific Ridge Beginning School
Enrollment is now open for the 2021-2022 school year
The Pacific Ridge Beginning School has a comprehensive approach to educating and enriching the whole child. We believe children learn best through meaningful play, which encourages curiosity, discovery, and opportunities for problem-solving. A powerful image of the young child as intelligent, creative, and capable allows each child to reach his or her highest potential. A deep respect for difference and a belief that diversity strengthens community creates an environment where children build a strong sense of self and empathy for others. Because we believe children play a central role in their own learning, our approach is founded on the research of child development and how children learn, building on the individual strengths, needs and interests of each child. We also believe that families are the child’s first teachers. Children learn best when families are involved in their learning. When children, families, and educators participate together we build opportunities for children to reach their full potential.
