Our mission
Our mission is to provide every child with a caring and positive atmosphere in which to learn and grow. We treat each child as an individual who learns in his or her own way. We realize that it is our job to find out the best way each individual child learns and to work as a team with the family of the child in order to ensure the best possible learning environment. As we bridge the gap between home and school, we guide children to a continued positive self-image while building social skills in a school setting and fostering the joy of learning.

Our view on education.
We firmly believe that children learn best in a stimulating, energetic atmosphere, with hands on activities, teacher guided lesson themes and repetition. We use our classroom as a model to teach respect, manners and team work. The staff at Robin's Nest engage in open ended questions, positive redirection, modeling behavior and working hand in hand.
