Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our Purpose is To
• provide experiences that meet children's needs and stimulate learning through a developmentally-appropriate curriculum stressing physical, cognitive, emotional, intellectual, creative and spiritual growth.
• appreciate each child’s different level of abilities and development.
• design appropriate activities that facilitate individual learning styles.
• make children active participants in their learning process through hands-on and sensory involvement.
Objectives
It takes children varying degrees of time to master skills or take developmental steps. Our objectives are to help each child:
• develop healthy self-esteem
• feel comfortable expressing his or her ideas
• develop language
• enjoy exploration and concentration
• make choices and complete tasks
• accept and follow directions
• enjoy and respect friends
• learn about and experience Christ's unconditional love for all people "
