Philosophy
Our goal is to make Jesus a living reality in the child's life by providing a Christ-centered atmosphere where he or she can learn and grow in the Lord. Our program is based on the needs of children and we offer activities that promote physical, emotional and individual growth, and well being.

Curriculum Statement
We believe that children learn best in a nurturing, safe, and loving environment. We want to partner with parents to help equip them with the knowledge and experience to raise children who are happy, well adjusted and caring aduilts. Our program encourages the following:
  • Age appropriate curriculum.
  • Planned learning and age appropriate free play (choices).
  • Ongoing training and professional development for all staff.
  • A learning environment that promotes an opportunity to explore each child's individuality through worship, sensory motor, music, exercise, reading, art, science, math and language arts.
