Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

* To present a Christian environment where all children can enhance their self-esteem through developmentally appropriate experiences. * To provide an atmosphere in which the child may develop at his or her own speed. * To guide the children along the road to growth and independence as responsible individuals by providing early opportunities to interact with peer groups and develop in their abilities to share, take turns and solve problems. * To help each child feel that he/she is a person of worth and ability. * To expose the child to ideas and experiences that are developmentally appropriate.
