Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Des Moines Christian Early Education philosophy of Christian Early Education is based primarily on the scripture: Psalm 239:13-14, "God created my inmost being. He put me together in my mother's womb...and I am fearfully and wonderfully made; God's works are wonderful!" Each child is unique and no one else is like him. As we prepare the environment, experiences and goals for each child and the class, we consider each child's ethnic background, home environment, abilities, limitation, personality, giftedness and qualities that are his/hers alone. It is the teacher's responsibility to nurture, love, guide and protect each child in the class room. Self expression is encouraged along with developing self-discipline which simply means the children are able to explore within boundaries set by the teacher. In our interdenominational Christian environment, children learn they are a person of worth, created by a loving God."
