Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe in teaching children through a mixture of guided and undirected creative play. The children have the opportunity to learn about color, shapes, textures, numbers, letters, animals, seasons, feelings, senses, nutrition, personal hygiene, manners, basic science and math concepts, and creative concepts such as "pretend" play, art, music, drama, and dance.

We teach the children to be accountable and responsible for their actions. Each child will learn respect for self, others, property and good manners. We believe the best way to do this is through demonstration and by teaching about the love of Jesus. This can be done through prayer, action, videos, books and music.

Our goal is to provide a safe, comfortable, stimulating, fun, educational environment with a semi-structured day plan where parents can work without the added stress of worrying whether or not their child is safe. Our activities include free and structured playtime, large and small motor skill activities, story time, theater activities, arts and crafts, music and dance, nature and ecology awareness, nutrition, cultural activities, and other educational, yet fun, activities.
