Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

From the Director:

We have an academic focus with lots of developmental and social opportunities. We offer computer classes for our three, four and five year olds. We teach Spanish to all of our children.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

With small teacher to child ratios teachers have an opportunity to spend extra time with children to help them achieve their full potential.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

It is our desire to guide each child through a process of spirtual, social, emontional and academic growth. Working together as a team we create a comfortable environment centered on Christian values and instill those values in each child. It is our belief that each child shoud enjoy an environment that encourages individual emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual growth. The first years of education pave the way to a lifetime of learning.
We know that children need to be given individual attention and take the time to foster self-esteem. A good parent, teacher and child relationship is an important bridge between home and school giving us an opportunity to work as a team to create a warm family environment.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

I am always here to greet parents and children in the mornings and to address any concerns they may be having. We have a monthly news letter, claendars and a parent mail box for all important forms or letters going home. We have many activities during the year that involve parent participation, including open house, parent-teacher conferences, trunk or treating, Thanksgiving feast, Spring hat parade, egg hunt and picnic and an end of the year field day.

Separation

Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school

Handling Separation: From the Director

Childen are given lots of love and attention. We work hard for our children to know all staff and be comfortable with them so they can be helped by any staff member. Many times we focus on the parent also, because it is usually as hard on them as it is for the child. I always tell parents to please call in an hour and see that everything is fine.
