PAMDS Mission Statement

“Play is the highest form of research."

                                                                                        -Albert Einstein

Since 1956, PAMDS has remained true to a play-based model. This small gem of a non-sectarian school has a warm, welcoming community that has educated generations of families. Our mission is to create a lifelong love of learning through hands-on experience and critical thinking. PAMDS’ experienced and dedicated teachers provide individualized instruction while fostering teamwork and cooperative play. Children are encouraged to take risks, learn from mistakes, and problem solve in an environment of mutual respect and trust. Aside from reading and writing readiness, our goal is to send children off to kindergarten with self-confidence, creativity, independence, and compassion. Research has shown that play has a direct positive impact on cognitive, social/emotional, and physical development, which in our experience is the foundation for successful learning.
