Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The philosophy of Joyful Noise Christian Preschool is to provide a Christian environment that offers a safe, loving and nurturing atmosphere. The goal of our preschool program is to encourage physical, cognitive, emotional and social development of each child through imaginative play and creative learning. This is accomplished by offering a broad spectrum of hands on activities and age appropriate experiences using a variety of educational principles. Each child can discover, stretch and grow physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially and spiritually, and do so at his/her own pace. We strive to help the children learn essential topics such as the alphabet, numbers, safety, and music, as well as seasons, holidays, and animals. By demonstrating expertise in these areas, the child develops self-confidence and individuality so they can transition more easily into their elementary education and become a healthy part of our society.
A child's work is their play!
