We believe that each child is valuable in the sight of God; therefore, the purpose of the school is to provide an environment conducive to developing the concept of wholeness in each child and to develop each child’s mind, body and spirit.

 By being respected as an individual, the child learns to respect others and this manifests a positive self-image. A child with good self-esteem will be aware of others’ needs for love, friendship and security. The child learns through the example and role modeling of the teachers as well as through active participation in a child-centered, multisensory program appropriate for the child’s level of development.

 We provide an atmosphere for nurturing each child’s body by providing play situations that develop physical coordination and by fostering good habits of personal health. We seek to develop cognitive potential. We nurture the child’s spirit by encouraging a personal relationship with God and a sense of Christian community.

 We believe that the school environment provides flexibility within a disciplined atmosphere. The teacher serves as an example and facilitator, and respects the child as an individual, providing a warm and loving experience that creates within a child a sense of trust and well being.

 Our instructional goals include age-appropriate experiences in language arts, math, science, social studies, art, music and physical education as part of the general areas of intellectual, spiritual, physical, emotional and social development. We value parent involvement.
