What is your philosophy on learning?

Our approach to learning involves educating the whole child. 

  • Intellectually - Each classroom is arranged in centers that provide for both structured and self-directed learning.  Our daily schedule includes a balance of active and quiet activities.  Creativity is encouraged and our learning center experiences are a healthy mix of fun and challenge.

  • Physically - Physical activity is important to a child's growth and development.  Children are given free playtime on our playground to jump, run, climb and socialize with their friends.  Nutritious meals and snacks, as well as age-appropriate rest times, will promote good physical health and motor development.

  • Emotionally - It is important for a child to feel successful, self-confident and have a sense of belonging.  Through individual and group learning times children will make discoveries about themselves, others and the world we all share.  Each child will come to understand we are all special individuals with unique needs and talents and be able to value the differences in others.

  • Spiritually - The Word of God is at the center of all we do.  We will learn daily about God's love for us and His love through us to our classmates, teacher, families, people in our community and around the world.

 

What types of classes do you offer?

  • Infants - Infants need to feel safe and loved.  Our consistent schedules for eating, sleeping, and playtimes, as well as lots of attention and care, will provide a safe, nurturing environment where they can explore, learn and grow.

  • Toddlers - Toddlers learn by doing and our creative, hands-on environment fosters a self-confident love of learning that will last a lifetime.

  • Preschoolers - Preschool is a time for learning together.  Individual learners become group participants interacting, communicating and working together in an exciting, fun environment.
