Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The early childhood program at St. Mark Child Development Center focuses on meeting the basic needs of every child to be loved and accepted. Within a supportive environment, learning experiences are provided to help each child increase individual awareness, recognize capabilities and limitations, and build a healthy self-image and confidence for moving successfully into the next stages of education.
Our goals stress the development of the "whole child"…….. spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically. We are a Christian school. A feeling of God’s love for families and all people is ongoing in loving, caring relationships with other children and well-trained staff. We endeavor to instill in each child a love of God, a love of self, and a love of others. "
