Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"This preschool is established as a service to the families and children of the community. The preschool complements the values found in a good Christian home by enabling the child to spend a part of his/her day in the world that is child sized. The day is planned so that the child learns to associate with other children of his/her own age in group activity.

Our purpose is to provide an environment that is safe, secure, nurturing and Christ-centered where children ages 2 1/2 to 5 years old can develop a positive sense of self-worth at his/her own rate. Each child has different patterns for growth and his/her learning experiences should reflect that individual pattern. The child is surrounded by a Christian atmosphere of respect and loving appreciation for each person and for the wonders of God's world.

The child learns most effectively in a child-centered and child-oriented environment, organized for discovery learning. He or she is involved in active experimentation, exploration, and independent selection. The scope of learning experiences should include physical, social, logical and spiritual knowledge. A successful developing child confidently acts on his or her environment, organizes his/her experiences and exhibits flexibility.

This particular philosophy does not concern itself with quick short-range chances in surface behavior, but rather in healthy positive learning that is the result of slow, subtle growth. This is lasting growth.
