Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

I believe that each child is a member of God's family. I want the preschool to provide a safe, loving, caring, and Christian environment in which young children can explore and grow in God's Love. A fundamental principle of this preschool is that play is a medium through which children learn. It is through this play experience that we will prepare the children socially and academically for a smooth transition into their later years of schooling.

Handling Separation: From the Director

Children are greeted when they enter the classroom. An activity on the table will start the day giving the children time to talk to each other. If a child is crying, the teacher will take the child away from the parent and find something that will interest the child in the classroom. A child is never left crying. The child could be the teacher buddy till they are ready to join the classroom.
