General School Mission

The Nursery Schoolâ??s primary goal is to make each child feel special. We build our studentsâ?? self-esteem by encouraging them to feel good about all of their accomplishments. There are opportunities for individual and group experiences. To fulfill the childâ??s needs, we provide a wide variety of activities such as art, music, science, cooking, role-playing and outdoor play. Through meaningful play experiences, our preschool children develop concepts and skills basic to the more difficult tasks of learning in later years.
As a church Nursery School, there will be some religious instruction such as prayer at snack time and crafts centered on Christian holidays. All religious traditions are welcome and respected. We accept children of any faith, race, color or national origin.
We endeavor to create a warm and accepting atmosphere where children are free to learn, to create, and to grow.
