Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led, Montessori

From the Director:

We abide by our own curriculum – Christian FLEx Curriculum. Our Educational Philosophy is simple we strongly believes that learning is a process. A passion for learning therefore is what we strive for everyday in our classes. We want to be able to develop and sustain the child’s natural curiosity so that as he moves on in life the love of learning will always be there. We work towards a hands-on approach and always incorporating the element of fun in all our activities. Being an Evangelical Lutheran Preschool, we imbibe the Christian values of Love, Faith, Grace, Respect and Responsibility. We strive to be models to our children at all times as we practice these values throughout of interactions with them. The school will always strive to work hand in hand with the families in order to meet their needs, when it comes to the development of the child. We see the importance of having a healthy school and home environment for our children and because of this we will always encourage and welcome active parent participation.
