Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At My Father's World Preschool we extend an atmosphere of unconditional love to the child as he/she begins their first learning experience outside of the home. Our goal is to provide a child-centered, informal environment that promotes all aspects of healthy growth and development. Each child will be encouraged to gain a concept of him/herself as a unique child of God and gain a basic understanding of the love of God for mankind. We support the family unit and encourage a positive self-image to help stimulate the self-confidence needed to meet all of life's new challenges.

Learning takes place through child initiated free choice activities, group activities and skill-focused learning (fine motor, gross motor, perceptual, memory, problem solving and literacy). Our preschool program is designed to be informal and flexible, but the curriculum and environment are a result of careful planning by the staff. The curriculum is designed to help each child develop socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritually.

At My Father's World Preschool the children have activities, read stories and sing songs about God and Jesus. Christian love and caring is the basis for our program throughout the year.
