We believe that play is the true work of children. lt is their language and the medium by which they begin to experience the world they inhabit. As they play with blocks, they develop the skills necessary to tackle mathematics. As they manipulate puzzles, they are increasing the perceptual development that they will need to begin reading. As they point and draw, they practice the hand-eye coordination needed to print. As they involve themselves in all of these activities, they are interacting with others – building the basis for language and social skills and forming their moral consciousness.
We strive to provide a nurturing environment in which all these wonderful things happen. An atmosphere of love, trust and patience where the child can safely explore, experiment and grow in his or her own time, of his or her own pace.
As a Christian school, we never lose sight of the child as a spiritual being, beloved by God and equal to any other member of the Body of Christ.
