School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

There are times of structure such as circle time, music, chapel and a few others. Our classrooms are set up with developmentally appropriate activities.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We believe that children are a gift from God. We understand that learning begins at birth. It is the mission and responsibility of the church to provide a safe, nurturing, interesting learning environment for very young children, where they will experience God's love, learn about God's world and be able to develop spiritually, cognitively and physically, emotionally and socially. Building disciples on the cornerstone of Jesus Christ, one life at a time.

A Typical Day

As children arrive at school they will have time in centers then move into a circle time. They will have a morning snack, playground time, lunch and rest on long days, more centers and playground. On Tuesdays or Wednesdays they will go to Movement class and Thrusdays or Fridays to music. Each class varies in the arrangement of the day.

Home-School Connection

We begin the year with a meet your teacher day. Open House is held about the third week of school. Teachers send home monthly newsletters and calendar and daily notes as needed.

I do have some information on alternative schools if requested.
