Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Amazing Grace Preschool believes that each child
is a unique individual.
has the right to be treated as such.
grows and develops in his/her own way.
needs opportunites to develop intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
should be encouraged to learn, discover and grow in a caring, positive environment.
should be exposed to a variety of learning experiences individually, in small groups, and in large groups.
needs both structured and discovery learning.
should have parents and teachers that collaborate in helping him/her reach his/her potential.
