Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The purpose of this program is to provide a Preschool and Day Care in a Christian environment that will benefit the child, parents, and community.

Children, like tender plants, must be nurtured during their early growth period in order to reach the maturity God has planned for them. The foundation for a child's social, emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual growth is built during early childhood.

To achieve our objectives, the school provides a stimulating enrichment program of acquiring knowledge through firsthand experiences. Within the preset structure, each child is free to use the materials, move at his own pace, and select his own experiences. Experiences may range from one-on-one to small or large groups and from self-directed to moderately teacher-directed. It is hoped that each child may develop according to his or her own individual style and grow in the skills necessary for functioning at the next educational level.

May the Lord richly bless us as we work together to train your child in the way he should go. (Prov. 22:6)

"Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work is pure, and whether it is right." (Prov. 20:11)
