School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

Children learn best through play and interaction. We have some directed instructional time but give the students many opportunities to make choices throughout the day.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Each child is a unique person, created by God, with great potential. We offer a beautiful, well-organized, hands on environment. We touch, smell, look, taste, hear and do. Our goals are to enable children to grow in trust, independence, initiative, self-confidence, pre-academic skills, and to learn about God in a safe and caring environment. We use a developmentally appropriate environment to enhance all areas of the child including emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual, and physical so that each child can develop to their fullest potential"
