The primary objective of our preschool is to provide positive and successful learning experiences in a secure and loving environment, reflecting the Christian philosophy. We work to foster growth of the whole child. We recognize that each child is an individual who is part of a group. Thinking strategies, language arts, math concepts, social studies, and science, as well as
social and physical skills are integrated to offer many varied learning opportunities.
Knowing that the parent is a child’s first teacher, we encourage parental involvement
and try to provide support for parents and caregivers.
