Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We Believe:

that each one of us is capable of loving because of God's great love for us.

that children need to experience love before they can love and care for themselves, others, and the world around them.

that children can be taught a good self-concept by the example of the teacher.

that learning should be fun and exciting.

that quality service includes a well-balanced curriculum and activities, as well as the love and dedication of self-disciplined teachers and staff.

that parent involvement in the child's education is important and should be encouraged.

that children need to develop the creativity within them.

that respect for the child requires a discipline which is firm, kind, fair and consistent.

that children need to work alone and in groups to develop a balance of independence and cooperation.

Children move from center to center between 9 a.m. and noon. Language arts, science, math, dramatic play, sensory table, blocks, music and arts and crafts activities are featured daily. Breakfast is served at 9:30 a.m., lunch at noon and afternoon snack at 2:30 p.m. Later in the afternoon, supervised open center time gives the children an opportunity to choose their favorite activities."
