Day in the Life

General School Mission

The educational philosphy for Horizon Preschool is based on a God-centered view that all truth is god's truth, and that the Bible is the inspired and the only infallivle authoritative Word of God containing this truth. God created all things and sustains all things. Therefore, the universe and man are dynamically related to God and have the purpose of glorifying Him. Because man is a sinner by nature and choice, he cannot, however, glorify or know God. He can do this only by choosing God's free gift of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ, thereby committing his life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Grounded in the Christian concept of love, the aim of HP is to provide a Christian perspective on the total world viw from which will come a balanced personality and a proper understanding and acceptance of a person's role in life at home, at work, at play and at worship.
The responsiblity of HP towars the student encompasses the spiritual, emotional, cognitive, physical, and social areas in preparation for kindergarten and for life. The Bible will be taught as an integrative element of all learning.
