Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

For our teachers, this is not a job, it is their passion. They take pride in everything they plan and do in their classroom. The teachers make sure they know each child's strengths and weaknesses and plan their classroom activities based on the needs and interests of the entire class. Our teachers are definitely what make our program stand out from all others! You have to meet us to understand!

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"OUR CHILD PHILOSOPHY The purpose of Carmel Presbyterian Weekday School is to nurture the growth of the �total child� - social, physical, emotional and spiritual. The very �special-ness� of each child is emphasized in the loving guidance of our Christian staff. We strive to expand the child's world through art, creative play, music, drama, exploration of the natural world, and storytelling, as well as the beginning concepts of colors, shapes, numbers and letters. Children learn best by �doing� - exploring, questioning, problem solving, and creative play. Each room is a place where the child is invited in to an atmosphere of experiential learning through play. We try to give children time to be children. They will never again be preschoolers! This program seeks to provide a warm, loving, child-sized, child-centered atmosphere where each child can safely explore talents, skills and interests. We believe each child is a child of God and therefore worthy of love, acceptance, and support. By modeling Christian love with a variety of activities and flexible teaching methods, our staff is able to nurture and enrich the self-esteem of God's littlest ones. We encourage a working partnership between school and home to provide the best possible experience for children. We welcome questions, suggestions and visits at any time."
