Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We believe that each child is an individual created by God. Our purpose is to provide an environment where children will thrive and develop a strong feeling of self-confidence. We believe that children grow developmentally at their own individual pace. Our program combines social interaction and free play with planned learning time that encourages these ideal. We are committed to providing a physical environment that is clean, safe, and oriented to children. Classrooms are arranged to offer challenging learning choices at a range of developmental levels. Activity (learning) centers allow children the opportunity to explore, experience, and most succeed.
We believe the greatest strength of our program is our teaching staff. We support our teachers with training, resources, and the freedom to create a unique Christian experience for children. Each staff member has a heart for children and desires to positively impact our preschool. Our teachers hold current CPR and First Aid certification. They also attend early childhood training during the school year.
