Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Day School strives to support the growth of children. By exploring, experimenting, and playing, our students learn about their world physically, emotionally, cognitively, socially, and spiritually. We believe that children will develop a strong self-esteem from successful experiences in creative play with other children in the confident knowledge that they are loved by one another, their family, and by Jesus.
Our mission is to serve as a lighthouse in our community, raising up God's children as He has commanded. We know God has a special plan for each child and He instills in each girl and boy an openness and an eagerness to learn. It is our privilege to help guide these children to realize their gifts."
