Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our philosophy is to help children grow in a positive way in their awareness of God, themselves, and the world around them. We believe in developmentally appropriate play and hands-on activities as the best path to learning. Our staff consists of skilled, experienced early-childhood educators. New ideas, teaching methods, and materials are incorporated into our program. Parents and visitors are encouraged to view our program at any time during the weekday mornings.

Our preschool program aims for a good balance of freedom and structure. Young children need time to explore, socialize, experiment, play and rest. They need to develop basic physical and mental skills, to learn to listen and follow instructions, and to develop readiness for the big step into kindergarten.

Indoor Activities are designed to enhance motor skills with art and craft projects, color and shape recognition, seasonal theme projects, reading readiness, number concept projects, puzzles, games, dramatic play, and free time.
Outdoor Activities include climbing, sliding, swinging, ball playing, sandbox, and more.
Language & Music learning is emphasized through singing, rhythm band, small group story-time, and flannel boards.
