"Children are important to us.
We are united in respect for the integrity of the child and his family.
Every voice counts.
We will foster the development of skills which encourage a child's successful contribution as a citizen of a community (self-confidence, caring for others, and social skills).
We will foster an interest in learning and the people and things in the world.
Children should feel secure in taking chances, trying new things, taking time, finding the good, and noticing little things.
Making a mistake while trying is OK.
There is something at St. Mark's that makes people want to be here!
