Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Belief. . . We believe in the worth of each child, regardless of age, sex, race, or religion and said child is entitled to a pain free, loving environment in which he/she feels safe and maximizes his/her potential as a member of a family unit, to love life to its fullest, and receive loving support through the final days of his/her life on earth.
Respect. . . We are committed to fostering the enrichment of life and respecting the unique needs of each child and family in death. We will provide a child/family centered model of care that reflects this respect toward all cultures and belief systems.
Alliance. . . We value and seek alliance with existing resources and strive to strengthen and enhance the comprehensive care, support and education available to dying children, their families, health care professionals and the caring community at large.
We honor the participation of those parents who have lost children to death and will exhibit strong leadership qualities and compassion to other children and parents in need."
