Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy of teaching is to work with the whole child in the context of a well-balanced program. Luke 2:52 says "Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man." Therefore, our goal is to encourage each child to grow in each of these five areas: physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual. We believe this is best done through play (learning centers), as children retain more through fun and active learning"
