Our Philosophy

Andover Academy’s philosophy is based upon several beliefs:

  • Learning is a continuous life-long process
  • Children grow and develop at varying rates
  • Learning occurs through both child-initiated and teacher-directed activities
  • Children learn best when concepts taught are relevant to their lives
  • Teachers create a stimulating, nurturing, and safe environment
  • Information taught and materials used should be developmentally appropriate for each age group
  • Open communication between school and parents
