Day in the Life

General School Mission

Park Street Kids places emphasis on the development of the whole child through various integrated hands-on lessons and activities. In a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, we nurture each child to achieve his or her full potential and develop an understanding of his or her worth as a unique being created by God.

The focus of the curriculum is to provide a love for learning and develop readiness skills in the areas of reading, math, language, social studies, science, health, and fine and large motor development.

Creativity, imagination, critical thinking, and social development are fostered through lessons, learning centers, and play. At Park Street Kids, we believe every child has special qualities to be discovered and shared.
