"The Cascade Christian School District established this Center as a service to families and
children of the community. This service has grown out of a sincere love for children and a desire
to help them develop and adjust to our modern world. The Early Childhood Center complements
the values generally taught in good homes.
The mission of our Center is to provide a high quality, spiritually based educational program for
young children. We provide care that parents can trust, through a developmentally appropriate
and supportive environment that encourages individuality and self-confidence within the child.
Our Center offers a curriculum where children are invited to grow, learn, and socialize. This will
encourage individuality that enhances a good self-concept. We provide stimulation through
developmentally appropriate curriculum. We feel childcare should be based on constructive
learning experiences designed to strengthen individual and group needs in the classroom.
The children are surrounded by a warm, friendly atmosphere of respect and loving appreciation
for each person and for the wonders of God's world. Each child is encouraged to progress at
his/her own pace toward enriched experiences, self-discipline and the ability to make good
Our aim is to develop the whole child by providing an educational experience of lasting value:
- Intellectually: by encouraging an enthusiasm for learning through exploring and hands-on
- Physically: by encouraging experiences that will develop large and small muscle
coordination and motor skills.
- Socially/Emotionally: by encouraging participation in group activities, getting along with
others, developing a feeling of security and belonging.
- Spiritually: by providing a Bible time, and by integrating a biblical worldview throughout the
curriculum and learning environment. Christ-centered character qualities are modeled
through the lives of our staff and the responses given to the children. Bible stories and songs
give each child an awareness of God's love for him."
