Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The two-fold purpose of our Preschool is to provide a warm Christian atmosphere in which each child can grow and develop according to his/her individual needs, and to provide parents the assurance that the child is being well cared for and loved.
A description of goals depends greatly on a child's growth, development, and age. Briefly, the child will be surrounded by an atmosphere of warmth, love, and acceptance. We strive to provide enrichment opportunities in major areas of development, including the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual aspects of growth. Opportunities will be provided for all children to expand experiences in both individual and group situations. Children will be encouraged to enhance self-reliance and decision making skills. The age of your child is of great importance in the choice and duration of activities.
