Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The “Whole Child” is ministered to in the daily program in a variety of ways. Activities are presented in creative and fun ways to encourage children's interest and involvement. We do this through a variety of learning methods such as music, stories, computers, science, cooking, physical activity, hands-on activities, games, areas and crafts. The following overview provides guidelines/goals for six areas of development.
Bible Stories, object lessons, Christian songs, and prayer are taught daily. We encourage children to practically apply these lessons to their daily lives and interactions with others. We model Christ-like Behavior and love to one another.
Activities for growth and development of small and large muscle coordination using a variety of games, exercise movements, and materials and spaces on our beautiful large campus.
Thinking skills, number/letter meaning and recognition presented to encourage intellectual curiosity and application of knowledge through “first hand” discovery experiences.
Participation in group activities and class “belonging” and responsibility is presented actively in stories, role-plays, group activities, and modeling by teachers. Understanding of rules, sharing of space and resources, and conflict resolution lessons are taught daily.
Values such as truth, respect for others, politeness, kindness, respect for God's world are reinforced in all work and play situations.
Self-esteem and a feeling of security are built by providing care, love, consistency and a safe, calm atmosphere.
