General School Mission

We believe that every child should have the opportunity to grow and develop at his or her own rate in an environment where positive self-esteem is stressed, and creativity and play are encouraged. At All Saints we provide an atmosphere where learning activities are developmentally appropriate and the children are involved in the process.
To provide a safe, nurturing, relaxed and nonsexist environment with caring adults who enhance self-esteem, encourage independence and offer an abundance of developmentally appropriate activities.

OUR GOALS

To provide a safe, nurturing, relaxed and nonsexist environment with caring adults who enhance self-esteem, encourage independence and offer an abundance of developmentally appropriate activities.

To respect each child’s individuality and encourage their respect for others through social skills.

To allow children to explore their environment and be active, inquisitive, creative learners while developing at their own individual pace.

To empower children by allowing them to make their own choices, take risks, and share their ideas so that they can reach their optimum potential.

To help children develop and enthusiasm for learning, where school is a positive place to be.

To foster good communication with parents so that they feel comfortable that their children are in a safe, secure place with adults they can trust.

To encourage self discipline by having limits clearly defined, consistently enforced and kept to a minimum.
