Our philosophy of education promotes active learning in children and nurtures the development of the while child. Our daily activities are planned with the intent of helping children grow in five developmental areas: physical, social-emotional, cognitive, creative, and spiritual development. We believe there must be a good balance of both child-directed and teacher-directed activities with the ultimate goal of reaching every child at their current level of learning. We want children to develop autonomy, self-esteem and have the ability to make their own decisions. However, we realize it is our responsibility to prepare children for academic success and give them the tools needed to communicate and function in society. We are a Christian school and therefore our curriculum includes Bible stories that are used to develop positive character traits in children. Furthermore, we practice prayer within the classroom, attend weekly chapel, and celebrate Christian holidays.
