Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our Goals are: To provide an atmosphere in which each child is helped to experience God's love and wonders of God's creation; to provide a safe atmosphere in which each child is lovingly respected and accepted as an individual with his / her own special needs ; to encourage the child's physical maturity by providing equipment and materials to develop coordination; to stimulate curiosity and awareness of the environment by exposing the child to activities related to his / her physical world; to encourage imagination and creativity by providing experiences with different art media and musical activities, as well as dramatic play ; to foster each child's development, at his/her own pace, into an emotionally healthy individual with a good feeling of self-identity and personal worth secure and comfortable in the world around him.
