Weekday Preschool Mission Statement

Our Preschool program is designed to give young children a loving, happy learning experience in a Christian environment.  It is the goal of this staff to provide a program to help children become happy, responsible, cooperative participants through positive teaching techniques that are age appropriate. It is our responsibility to give feedback and help them grow in respecting the rights and feelings of other people through basic Christian principles.

Program Goals

  1. To provide a nurturing, flexible and calm atmosphere where self-concept is enhanced, independence is encouraged and expectations are made clear.
  2. To provide an atmosphere where the foundation of respect for others is established, along with respect for the equipment and materials.
    1. To foster security with adults who are not members of the family.
    2. To encourage neatness in putting away things when children have finished using them.
  3. To develop an active curiosity about the world, in which each child lives and encourages an enthusiasm for learning, which stimulates exploratory behavior and creativity.
  4. To develop spiritual growth.
    1. To know that God is our creator
    2. That God’s gift to us was His Son, Jesus Christ
    3. God loves and takes care of everyone
  5. To promote emotional growth.
    1. To build self-confidence and a sense of self-worth by allowing choices within limits and to build on successful experiences.
    2. To provide a warm accepting environment for each child to work and play.
    3. To encourage curiosity and a sense of wonder with an emphasis on self-motivation.
