Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Through play based learning, each child and his or her skill level can be addressed through peer and teacher interactions. If a child is behind in an area, focus will be directed to that area. If a child excells in an area, that child can be focused on the next level of learning.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Christian preschool education nurtures and strengthens the faith of each child
and supports Christian parenthood
and home life. It provides kindergarten readiness and aids in early detection of academic, social, and emotional needs. Children will learn at different rates, depending on their own God-given capabilities and desires. We are here to serve those seeking a Christian education for their child. With the Lord’s help, we will serve you to the best of our abilities."
Excerpted from the preschool's website

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Each week a teacher-made newsletter is sent home for parents. It highlights what we will be focusing on in our learning for the week. Parents are also invited to speak with the teacher formally (through parent teacher conferences) and informally (should a concern arise) throughout the school year. In addition to special days (field trips, seasonal classroom activities, ...), parents are always welcome in the classroom.
