A Learning Opportunity in a Christian Setting

Our goal is to provide activities that will lead to physical development and growth, intellectual stimulation, aid healthy social and emotional growth and encourage expression of creative potentials. We strive to address the needs of the whole child in a well-planned, loving Christian setting. Our program is based on a creative approach to learning wherein children learn by doing. Through hands-on activities, we offer opportunities for development through the senses. First hand learning experiences help expand a child’s awareness and knowledge. We build upon concepts and ideas that are appropriate during the early years of childhood. Our well-planned, but flexible program is designed to meet the individual needs of each child by providing a variety of experiences that build self-esteem and promote positive self-concepts.
