Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"In a caring and positive atmosphere, we create a friendly and happy place where children can learn to live, work, and play. As we bridge the gap from home to school, we guide children to a continued positive self-image while building skills in a school setting. The additional value of a church program is the many opportunities afforded our teachers to guide children on their level of development and maturity in the Christian way of life.
Based on the theory that children learn through play, classroom routines encourage active involvement, meaningful experimentation, and reinforcement through repetition. Schedules are designed in which balance is achieved between structure and free choice, as well as active and quiet times.
Recognizing that children grow in predictable stages, we treat each child as an individual, working from the level each child has attained and moving forward a step at a time. We teach a love of learning by allowing children to experience their own stage of development and helping them to experience the feeling of success without pressure.
We value the active involvement of parents in our programs. School then becomes a shared experience, which hopefully will continue throughout each child's educational process. "
