Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"- We view a child as a whole person, which includes his/her physical, social, emotional and intellectual abilities.
We strive to enhance these abilities as we guide a child to become a competent, well-balanced social being.
- We feel that effective child development involves partnerships among staff, parents, and children. From this perspective, we treat staff and parents with the same dignity and respect we offer the children. We strive to be an employer-of-choice for dedicated child educators, and a welcoming community in which parents and staff work together for the good of the children.
- We are an ecumenical Christian daycare center. We are guided by Christian principles and we teach Judeo- Christian values. However, our center is open to children of any religion, race, color, and ethnic group or national origin. Moreover, we strive to embrace differences among our children by celebrating holidays from the diverse cultures and religions present in our community."
