Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

At Children's Paradise we believe children are each very unique and valuable individuals and we believe that our children are the future leaders of the world. We believe that they grow, learn and develop respect through the adult role models which they
encounter every day. Each family enrolled at Children's Paradise is treated with dignity and respect. We believe in providing an exciting early childhood education in warm surroundings where the best aspects of home and school are combined.
Children's Paradise is a place where infants start in a "home away from home" atmosphere and continue on through their elementary years... An environment where our children are always encouraged to explore, create, play, and interact to become stimulated and challenged
