Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led

From the Director:

Philosophy of Education We believe that parents are God�s primary provision for nurturing and educating children (Deuteronomy 6:6-9). Our philosophy of Christian education consists of the home, church and school aligning themselves and working together to help provide a solid foundation for the students. The ultimate goal of students is for them to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. It is our desire to come alongside and supplement the home, serving as a representative of parents in matters of education, ministry, and discipline during school hours. We believe a strong home/school relationship is essential. Therefore, parental involvement and support play a vital role in the social, emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual growth of each child (1Thessalonians 5:23). Teachers and parents must regularly and consistently communicate regarding the progress of their child. As a ministry of Maranatha Chapel, Maranatha Christian Preschool presents a Bible-centered, hands on, developmentally appropriate philosophy of education that places Jesus Christ at the center of all things. God�s Truth is universal in scope. Therefore, we believe that integrating the knowledge of His truth with man�s discoveries in science, mathematics, geography, literature, etc. will give our students an appropriate and godly perspective.
