Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

Curriculum & Teaching Approach

From the Director:

"In keeping with the philosophy of our program, it is our goal to develop in each child a love for God, their family, themselves and others. We have set forth specific developmental goals to instill within each child this love, as well as a love for learning and for the world around them. In consideration of the developmental levels of young children, our program consists of short, structured teaching times, periods of independent practice of learned activities, and time for individual choice and discovery. Because children learn best through integrated activities, all areas of development will be coordinated to develop the whole child." Extracted from

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"It is our philosophy that children are a gift from God and are to be treasured and nurtured according to the principles set forth in God's Word. We believe that children learn through experience and exploration.

Our goal is to instill in each child a knowledge that they are created in the image of God and therefore worthy of highest esteem.

Providing practice in the areas of cognitive, perceptual, social, emotional, physical, creative and spiritual development are key to the curriculum we have established at Bethel.

Our staff is committed to offering the highest standard in meeting these critical developmental needs."
