General School Mission

"We provide an environment that encourages each child's developmental growth spiritually, physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally.

To encourage social development by providing opportunities for sharing, taking turns, making friends, resolving conflicts, helping others, recognizing and accepting others, cooperating on projects, and building self-esteem.

To encourage emotional development through verbal expression of thoughts and feelings, experiencing rules and limits, experiencing kindness, justice, and empathy, and recognizing and accepting emotions in others. To develop a respect of other individuals.

To develop responsibility for one's own actions in self-help, health, safety , and interpersonal areas, and to exercise appropriate independence.

To encourage the phsyical development of large motor skills through outdoor and indoor games and activities, as well as fine motor development through the use of manipulative toys, blocks, puzzles, and other small tools and objects.

To facilitate the development of visual motor skills.

To encourage creativity by offering many kinds of materials and frequent experiences in music, art, dramatics, literature, and oral skills.

To encourage interest in language through stories, puppetry, housekeeping, music, games, science materials, and other conversations.

To facilitate intellectual development by widening the child's experience in order to increase knowledge, basic concepts, and skills.

Our main goals for this age group are to inspire a love for learning and offer a wide variety of experiences to begin the lifelong journey of seeking knowledge. In a nurturing, supportive environment, transitional kindergarten children are challenged, experience great success, and sometimes fail, but we are always encouraged to find the self-confidence to move to the next level of learning.
