Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our program is designed to nurture the development of each child as a unique and special individual created in the image of God. Through interaction with others, children learn to express their ideas and respect themselves while building self-esteem and social skills. Every aspect of our program is geared toward developing an environment where children are encouraged to explore, problem solve, discover, and practice newly emerging skills. Our goal is to create a special environment of unconditional love, support and respect for the children. Our activities include science, language arts, mathematical concepts, arts & crafts, music and movement, small and large motor development,
sensory and dramatic play, simple cooking, and field trips to the community to explore the world around us."
