Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Christ Church Nursery School was established in 1960 as a non-sectarian, non-profit, outreach ministry of Christ Church. Our mission is to promote the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of each child.
Through developmentally appropriate and stimulating programs we nurture a child's innate love of learning, encourage their curiosity, and awaken their creativity. We strive to deepen a child's understanding and commitment to spiritual values such as kindness, mutual respect and cooperation. It is the philosophy of Christ Church Nursery School that each child is a person with unique ability and infinite capacity to grow.
In addition to our programs, we foster open communication and friendly relationships throughout the entire Christ Church Nursery School community. "
