Our Philosophy

Researchers state that the infant makes no random or useless movements. From the beginning, every action has meaning, purpose, and design. In the same way, if all children compulsively spend the bulk of their time in some activity, then that activity must play a major role in genetic organization. Fantasy play and magical thinking cannot be errors of nature or examples of faulty child logic needing adult correction because no species would survive with such a built in contradiction. -Joseph Chilton Pierce

Drawing from diverse traditions in early education, Livingston Street places an emphasis on the building blocks of social and emotional development, play, communication, and the meaningful connections between children, family, and community. The result is a nurturing environment that provides a secure routine as a basis for your child’s cognitive, physical, and social growth.
