Preschool

PHILOSOPHY We recognize the need for children to feel wanted and recognized; therefore, we believe one of the best ways children learn best is by establishing and building trust. We value the importance of learning and take pride in our teachers as they customize curriculum based on what the children are actively exploring and what interests them. We recognize each child learns differently and we encourage the children to do so. We also find value in that children learn best through daily interactions within their environment. In believing this, we strive to help children develop healthy attitudes towards themselves and others so that they may be functioning citizens in their society.
 
Because we are a program that is passionate about helping all individuals reach their full potential, we understand the importance of acceptance. Our educators lead a Christian living example by providing love, trust, safety, encouragement, and comfort that all children need daily.
MISSION STATEMENT: To encourage and support the success and well-being of children, families, and the child care community. We will provide opportunities for social-emotional interactions, foster cognitive growth, and physical development.

Our mission is to help provide working families a safe environment where children can explore, learn, and have fun!
