School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our Philosophy
Children's Circle is a weekday, developmentally appropriate, activity-based, Christian program.
We meet the needs of the whole child in a fun, creative, nurturing environment.
We believe in the value and uniqueness of each child.
We strive to develop in our children the qualities of confidence, compassion, creativity, curiosity, and competence.
We believe a learning environment should be safe and loving, challenging, stimulating, and developmentally appropriate.
We believe our role as teachers is to model Christian values, respect each child, provide security and acceptance, be good observers of children, protect self-esteem, be good listeners, and support and assist parents.
We acknowledge a reciprocal learning process. As the children learn from us, we also learn from them.
