Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our Philosophy
To a working parent or guardian, a child care facility is more than just a baby sitter. It is a part of the input to the child's personality development, early education, and social interactions that can shape his/her future. We feel that the most stable and secure environment can be developed for your child using the basic ingredient of the home - love. That is why we believe that the giving and receiving of love must be a basic function in our schools.
The students will encounter a variety of innovative activities to help them grow socially, mentally, verbally, and physically. The day's work includes a balance of active and passive activities, as well as, teacher-directed and child chosen tasks.
As a non-denominational Christian school, we feel it is important to instill patriotism and Christian values in our students. Every day in our classrooms, students salute the flag, sing a patriotic song, and say the Lord's Prayer.
