Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Your child's early years are a magical time. We recognize this and encourage your child's creativity and unique personality.
Our philosophy is that we believe each child is a special individual with varying interests and abilities. Our programs foster your child's creativity, self-image and continual growth and provide a variety of learning experiences that promote physical, intellectual, social and emotional development and are designed to help children develop to their fullest potential.

We instill Christian and Franciscan values by encouraging children to be aware of the wonder and beauty of creation in which they are immersed, enabling them to grow in harmony with themselves, others and the world around them.

We see ourselves in partnership with parents and are supportive of and recognize the challenges you encounter in today's world. We provide your child with a warm and nurturing environment - a home away from home - and keep you “in the loop” by sending notes home as well as meeting with you regularly.
