The Skane School Mission Statement is to create a nuturing, motivating, environment that enhances physical, social, and cognitive growth of young children. The philosophy of the Skane Program is that all children learn through active exploration of their environment. A rich environment creates concrete opportunities for children to learn through interaction with materials and people. The role of the teacher is to create an environment that invites children to observe, to be active, to make choices and to experiment. Children learn "how to learn" starting in preschool, and continue this learning all through their lives.
