Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our purpose and philosophy is to provide a family atmosphere where each child learns that he/she is a unique and precious individual - a special person for whom Jesus lived, died, and rose again.
We want to help children grow spiritually, socially, intellectually, emotionally, and physically in a safe, secure, child-centered environment of warmth, friendliness, and genuine love.
The children will have opportunities for exploring, experimenting, and questioning, which will encourage curiosity, creativity, and expression. Since all children are individuals, we believe in developing the whole child in accordance with his/her needs and learning styles through developmentally appropriate play and instruction.
We believe that parents and teachers need to be partners in the entire educational process. To this end, we stress open communication and ask for your participation.
