Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Responding to the needs of parents and children is an integral part of the mission and ministry of the congregation. In meeting these needs, programs are designed to involve congregational members, the community, the family and the child.
Education and child care supplement to enhance the nurture already present in the home. The parent is the primary teacher. Programs are developed to help support and encourage the parents in their role.
Education and childcare are significant opportunities we have for congregational ministry into the community.
"The young child is a gift from God."
And learns best about God's world through experimentation and exploration. Therefore, the early childhood program plans developmentally appropriate activities and values play as an avenue for learning. While learning is encouraged, it is never hurried.
Each child is a unique and special child of God and we encourage his/her self-esteem and individuality whereby children may find identity, purpose and power for their life in Christ by living in the knowledge of Him as their Lord and Savior.
Education and childcare provide a warm and loving Christ-centered environment where children can develop to his/her fullest potential.
