Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"PHILOSOPHY
It is the philosophy of The Children's Ark at St. George's to concentrate on educating the total child, treating each child as an individual with unique characteristics.

We believe in a warm, loving, stimulating atmosphere helps the children to reach their fullest
potential in:
intellectual
communicative
perceptual
physical
social
and emotional growth.
We also teach children about God's love for them and their important place in this world. This establishes a necessary and solid foundation for a healthy self-esteem and an appreciation of
individual differences.
