Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe children will grow and thrive in an atmosphere of Christian love where the curriculum addresses the needs of the whole child. The Presbyterian Church Nursery School staff is sensitive to the individual needs of children. Elements of our curriculum address positive self-concepts, self-control, independence, interdependence, cognitive and perceptual skills, language art experiences, music and art activities, and large and small motor coordination. Our program includes concrete learning experiences combined with imaginative play under the supervision of caring teachers. We seek to teach children to hold the name of God in honor and reverence and to seek His rule in every dimension of life as we encourage a love for learning and a love for Jesus Christ.
We have designed the Nursery School experience to be a complement to family life. As such, we encourage frequent and open communication between staff and parents. Our goal is to provide a quality learning experience that will enhance the social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual development of each child."
