"The mission of the Preschool Ministry at St. Mark's is to create a Christian environment in which our teachers are committed to emphasizing the following objectives:
Each child will be encouraged to develop as a whole person. Attention will be given to physical, spiritual, social, emotional and intellectual growth.
Each child will be encouraged to learn the values of sharing, fair play, self-discipline, kindness and consideration. As a part of the adjustment to group play and learning, they will be taught to follow directions and encourage each other.
Each child will be given opportunities to develop
self-esteem and the confidence to use his or her special gifts and talents.
The preschool program will follow the same schedule as the Alamance-Burlington School system with the exception of opening and closing dates. The preschool calendar incorporates teacher workdays. If we should miss any days due to inclement weather, workdays will be adjusted accordingly. Additional days will not be added at the end of the school year.
