Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our Philosophy:
Our philosophy at Hopes & Dreams is that children are a precious
gift of God and should be treated as so. Jesus stated "Let the
children come to me" and through our training and discipline, we
will strive to teach them to do exactly that. Not only will we focus on
Bible and scripture memory, we will teach basic reading skills and
math concepts. Our day will consist of a balance of teacher-guided
and child initiated indoor and outdoor activities. Your child will also
have the opportunity to build and foster relationships with their
peers. Because we believe that success breeds positive self
esteem, we will guide our teaching and our child's learning so that
they will succeed.
