Early and Elementary School
Learn more about our unique approach to your child’s learning.
A Better Alternative
We provide an alternative choice in our therapeutic school for children who struggle emotionally and academically in a mainstream school environment.
Our teachers develop individual learning plans for each child, providing strategies to work around the behavioral and mental health-related blocks that get in the way of academic success. At the same time, children also work individually with therapists on-site. The end goal is to prepare all students to thrive in regular mainstream classrooms, and to develop solid academic and social skills to help them learn and grow throughout their lives.
Our classrooms are bright and airy with an abundance of natural light. We have a well equipped outdoor learning environment that includes a playground, nature trails, and a therapeutic teaching garden with a greenhouse for year-round activities. The average teacher/student ratio at Lucy Daniels School is 1:5, but is typically lower in Early School. Our school hours are 8:30am-2:45pm and after school care is available for grades 1-5.
Our Students and Parents
Our students and their parents meet regularly with a parent guidance counselor to work on understanding and reducing challenging behaviors at home or in other settings. This collaborative approach creates an environment where children progress socially and academically, improve and change their behaviors, and develop resilience so that they can become successful and competent learners.
