Head of School's Welcome
We believe that all children deserve to develop in an environment that is nurturing, safe and intelligent.
We believe in working hand in hand with parents/families. Parents are their children’s first teachers and we are a system of support. A cooperative relationship between home and school can contribute to the success of a child.
We believe the adults in our school community are role models. The adults at VAMA model respect for themselves, others, the environment, and the community around them. We are here to guide the children in independence, critical thinking, problem-solving techniques, social grace and courtesy as well as respect for all.
We believe that every member of our community has a fundamental right to be treated with respect regardless of age, gender, ethnic origin, sexual preference, religion, race, or disability.
We strive to provide a loving, diverse, and peaceful environment in which to learn. We strive to ensure that children are respected and accepted as unique individuals.
