Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe the early years of a child's life are profoundly significant and what they learn
now will affect their entire lives. We endeavor, therefore, to provide a program that will
help children develop their potential and become more aware of their environment and
peers. We help the children to grow socially by encouraging them to share, to love, and
to learn self-control relative to their level of maturity. We strive to provide a program
that ensures cognitive and effective development through challenging and stimulating
surroundings; a program that enhances sensori-motor skills through rhythms, play and
special exercises. We encourage self-expression and creativity through many types of
media such as music, art, dramatic play and books. We try to guide children to a loving
awareness of God and His beautiful world."
