Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"# Value each child as a unique and special child of God.
# Provide a Christian Atmosphere and curriculum.
# Focus on quality educational programming.
# Value children's play experience as avenues for learning and provide a developmentally appropriate environment."
Excerpted from the preschool's website

A Typical Day

"The Open Arms program blends quality care and education. Each day children will be offered a stimulating environment with an array of developmentally appropriate learning experiences. Since young children learn best through play, activities such as Bible lessons and stories, finger plays, music, creative art, science and math exploration, and language enhancement are planned to encourage the children's eagerness to learn, especially about their Lord's creation.
