"The Preschool and Day Care Center is an integral part of Emmanuel Church’s outreach to the community. We believe that this outreach is a crucial part of our mandate to share God’s love with others. We believe that, as a child of God, each child is special. Our intention is to provide a supportive and caring educational environment in which each child’s self worth is affirmed and sustained. We believe that children’s spiritual lives should be enriched so they grow in an understanding of God’s purpose for their lives. Our weekly expressions of worship are designed to help the children grow in faith, hope and love. We regard a good education as a process of inquiry that leads to thoughtful self-awareness along with a broad understanding of one’s environment. With this in mind, we encourage our children to grow in creative ways without unnecessary and undesirable pressures. We believe also that a good education strives for balance rather than extremes: security and a sense of independence self-expression and self-control self-awareness and group awareness creativity and thoughtful conformity physical development and coordination"
