Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

Our major goals are to provide children with guided play and learning in an atmosphere of Christian love and to help educate parents about preschool children through observation, participation and parent meetings. We strive to provide a secure, nurturing environment which allows children to develop spiritually, socially, physically and intellectually. We encourage growing faith, a positive self-concept, creative expression, enhanced verbal and motor skills and sound health and safety practices.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Covenant Presbyterian Preschool and Child's Day Out works to assure exceptional school beginnings for children. We strive to provide a secure, nurturing environment which allows children to develop spiritually, socially, physically and intellectually. We encourage growing faith, a positive self-concept, creative expression, enhanced verbal and motor skills and sound health and safety practices.

A Typical Day

A typical day at Covenant Preschool and Child's Day Out includes age appropriate play in the classroom through learning centers, art, music, Chapel, outside play, snacks, storytime and special studies. The welfare of each individual child is our primary concern. We try and meet a child's needs and interests by offering opportunities to learn and make discoveries on their own. This is achieved through planned experiences in learning through relationships with other children and parents.
