General School Mission

"Our Mission at the Bearcamp Valley School and Children's Center is to provide a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment for children; to seek a balance in addressing each child as a unique social, emotional, intellectual, and physical person; to empower children to be responsible, caring, creative, hardworking, and playful contributors to their community; and to support and work in partnership with the children's families, both to respond to their needs and to offer participation in the center's daily life.
