Our Philosophy

“To provide an age appropriate, nurturing and learning experience for the preschool child in a Christian environment.”

girlWe believe that each child is a valuable, unique individual created in God's image. Each child benefits from a consistent, respectful, safe, loving, and stimulating environment which will encourage all aspects of development. We affirm each child's worth and seek to nurture them as individuals.

Our GOAL is to help each child feel secure in a nurturing environment as an extension of the security of the home and family. Our well-trained Christian staff strives to provide the kind of affection, respect, personal concern, and care that reflects God's love and a parent's own love.

Preschool age children's cognitive development varies greatly. We believe in exposing the children to the various aspects of academics knowing that at some point as their little brains develop and mature, everything eventually will come together.

We challenge each child to grow in these areas:
