General School Mission

Prairie Babies

My philosophy is to provide a loving, happy, secure environment for children. I strive to enrich each child with a positive self-image, and a sense of creativity. I also strive to promote mutual respect between the parent, the child, and myself. To accomplish these goals, I will work:

1.To provide a nurturing atmosphere to promote a childâ??s creativity and positive selfâ??image.

2.To provide positive methods of discipline to reinforce the strengths of the children and to help develop a respect for others. I try to develop age appropriate limits to help the children gain a sense of independence and responsibility.

3.To be available to parents for the purpose of daily communication. My doors are always open to the parents.
