helpfulness towards others
PHYSICALLY
Develop and improve each child's fine motor and gross motor skills and abilities

Stimulate each child's interest in learning, by being creative and flexible, with
"hands-on" experiences as a primary teaching tool
EMOTIONALLY
Develop in each child a confidence of their self worth and uniqueness
SPIRITUALLY
Direct each child in the knowledge of God's love, care, and concern for them; teaching
always Biblical truths of His love, power, creation, and goodness, through His Son, Jesus
