Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that each child is a unique individual and we recognize that the early years are the most important years for learning, loving and gaining trust. We believe that by providing a warm, welcoming and caring Christian atmosphere and a committed staff that is passionate about providing a positive learning environment, we will be encouraging each child's initiative, independence, responsibility and selfdiscipline.
We believe that play is the most important activity in the lives of children. That
play, is the work, the occupation of childhood. Through a variety of developmentally appropriate learning experiences, activities and multicultural materials children will develop cognitively (intellectually), creatively, physically, socially, and emotionally.
We believe that a mixed-age grouping of children in pre-school encourages a child's cognitive problem-solving skills as well as the development of positive social behaviors.
Children are afforded opportunities to practice and learn from cooperative
play with peers. Mixed-age grouping welcomes siblings enrollment and supports a home-like nurturing environment.
