Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Whittier Christian's Early Education Program understands that the Preschool experience is not mandatory for
success in Kindergarten and primary grades. However, we view our school ministry as a service to the families
and children of our community who desire quality Christian childcare and academic enrichment for their children
ages 2 - 7 years (including kindergarten).
We believe that each child should be encouraged to progress at his own rate of speed toward enriched
experiences, self-discipline and the ability to make good choices. Our aim is to provide an education that
develops the whole person in each child by providing an educational experience of lasting value with biblical
values and principles woven throughout.
Whittier Christian Early Education Program is designed to enhance a child's spiritual, mental, social and physical
development. It is our goal to provide each child with an environment that will allow them to develop in all these
areas. "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men." Luke 2:52
All teaching is CHRIST-CENTERED. God is central to our educational approach at Whittier Christian Early
Schools. We believe the purpose of the school is to teach truth and the skills a child needs to discover and
understand truth. God claims himself to be truth: "I am the way, the truth and the lifeā€¦" John 14:6. Our school
seeks to teach truth and so must focus on God who is the essence of Truth. Our students will understand who God
is, what He desires for each person, what He says about the world around us, and how we can know Him.
We believe the Bible is a most precise revelation of God's truth and must be central to our teaching. All truth
discovered must be consistent with God's Word."
