We encourage parent participation in our program and promote a supportive relationship between parents and staff.We are commissioned by Christ to care for children in His name.While providing a loving and caring atmosphere, as Christians, we recognize it is our responsibility to instill in those committed to our care, a sense of self-worth and self-discipline.No child will be discriminated against based on race, color, creed or handicap.
