Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children-spiritually, physically, emotionally, and socially.
We believe that the Holy Bible is God's inerrant Word. Our curriculum is Biblically-based.
We believe God loves, cares for and is concerned for children.
We believe that the Christian preschool should cooperate with the parent to provide a Christian education for the child.
We believe Christ died and arose for the salvation of children and adults."
