Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"FACE Children's Center is dedicated to the optimal growth of each child by encouraging them to be themselves and respect the differences and needs of others regardless of race, national origin, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, marital status, sexual orientation, and disabilities.
This is achieved through a non-judgmental, nurturing and supportive environment that fosters cultural diversity, social, artistic and academic potential. A sense of community, positive self-image and joy of learning is enhanced through a strong cooperation between parents, teachers, and administration.
Emphasis is placed on giving each child a firm foundation in the learning process, where trying is a positive experience and decision making is encouraged.
The end goal is that the philosophical basis translates into a happy confident child."
