Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

" Our primary goal for the emotional development of the young child is a positive self-concept. In an effort to attain this goal, we will accept the uniqueness of each child as we seek to understand him/her. Our concerns are that (s)he experience success and develops a sense of basic trust, autonomy, and initiative.
2. The children will develop socially as they interact with each other on a regular basis and as they are guided by reassuring adults who provide a model of desirable social interaction as they relate to the children. Basic to healthy social attitudes is the child's sense of self worth.
3. It is our goal that each child's self image will be enhanced as (s)he develops both fine and gross motor skills. Understanding each child's physical needs will help us provide experiences to help him/her gain mastery of his/her growing and changing body.
4. In the area of intellectual growth, our goal is to help the child develop thinking and problem solving skills. The development of concepts is more important and more useful to children than rote learning.
5. Spiritual growth will be fostered as the child's needs are met in a supportive atmosphere. This awareness of God will have depth and meaning as (s)he experiences nurture in a Christian community.
