Philosophy

​​We believe all children learn best through play and experimentation.  Our mission is to have a safe, secure, friendly, and nurturing environment that encourages confidence in students as they grow in independence, self-respect, and a love for learning.

Academics and Play

Daily routines, lessons, and conversations help prepare our children for their journeys to kindergarten.  We offer a wide variety of educational, open-ended games, materials, toys, and activities.

Exploring the Outdoors

We have an outdoor classroom space that we use when the weather is conducive to outside learning.  We also end each day with play on our large, fenced playground area (weather permitting).  When we cannot go outdoors, we have indoor recess in the large round room in the church building, exploring obstacle courses, parachute play, and indoor playground equipment.  We also incorporate movement and active songs and games into our mornings inside. 

In addition to regular outdoor play and learning, we like to go on nature walks around the church grounds, looking for signs of the seasons, plants, and animals.  We enjoy using different senses to learn new things about the outdoors!
