Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our purpose is to provide quality care for children who are 2 1/2 through 5 years of age in a safe, happy, healthy, and intellectually stimulating Christian environment. It is our goal to provide instruction and experiences that will help the child grow spiritually as well as intellectually, socially, and emotionally.
We believe that each child follows predictable stages of growth and development, but progresses through these stages at his/her own rate and in his/her own unique way. Each child is God's unique creation and therefore has unique strengths and needs. We build on these strengths and meet the needs by providing a wide variety of both teacher-directed and child-centered activities in math, science, social studies, art, music, language, creative movement, and Bible. We also believe that each child learns by doing, especially during these preschool years. Therefore, we plan instructional activities, special events, and experiences that are age appropriate and involve the child in active learning.
We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children. It is the Christian school's responsibility to augment and support the values of the Christian parents and the Christian home while the child is in our care"
