Teachers work with students individually during free-play time. They are always assessing and adjusting their curriculum to fit the needs of the individual child. We realize a one method approach to learning does not work.
"Warren Christian School adopts as its basic philosophy quality education within the framework of fundamental Christianity. Toward this end, the following statements of philosophy are set forth:
We believe that all knowledge, whether scientific, historical, philosophic, or spiritual finds its verity in its relationship to God as the ultimate source and foundation of all truth. We further believe that God's purpose in the creation of man was to glorify Himself.
We believe that man is a sinner by nature, through Adam and his own choice, and cannot in this state glorify God. In order to attain this end, man must obtain a new nature by receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, the infallible and only rule of faith and life. We believe God has revealed Himself only in a general way through His world and universe, but in a specific way through His Word and His son.
We believe that the educational process must include an effort to lead the student to personal faith in Jesus Christ. The educational process must present all truth as God's truth and interpret it by and integrate it with, God's Word; and must seek to relate the whole person to God, spiritually, mentally, socially, morally, and physically.
We believe that the education of children is the God given responsibility of the parents and that the school is to function as an extension and aid of the home and church to meet this obligation.
We believe that the educational process must inspire within the student a conscientious, loyal, and reverent attitude toward the responsibilities which come with growth and maturity.
We believe that God has given differing abilities to each student. It is the responsibility of the school and the teacher to challenge each child according to his ability and seek to teach him at his academic level.
We believe that the educational process must seek to produce individuals who can reason intelligently and rationally, communicate effectively, perform basic mathematical computations accurately, and display an intelligent and healthy understanding of society and social living.
We believe that the environment for learning must be wholesome and serious to be most effective. To effect such an environment, the learning process must be conducted under a system of firm, fair, and loving discipline. The school should seek to impress upon the student that his or her intellectual and spiritual welfare is of prime importance.
We believe that the intellectual, physical and emotional, and social needs of the student can best be met when sound proven teaching methodology is integrated with fundamental Bible teaching.

The parents are instructed to take their child's folder home daily that have activities that parents can do with their children if they wish. Sometimes, the folder is just for the parents to see what was accomplished during the day. Parents are always encouraged to work with their child, but not to force their child to learn things they may not be ready for.
Sometimes the separation is harder for the parent than the child. We do our best to encourage the parent to visit or stay with their child until they feel comforable in leaving. Most parents are very familiar with our program and know that we will call them if their child is not adjusting.
