Our mission is to take advantage of the teachable moments that happen every day that cultivate a love for learning.
Our goal is to help your child thrive in a caring, Christian environment that promotes cultural values and supports positive relationships and respectful interaction.
Our purpose is to help foster the cognitive, creative, emotional, social, spiritual, and the physical growth and development of each student. Through a healthy balance of child-directed and teacher-guided activities, your child will be encouraged to participate and work individually, as well as in small and large groups.
