Children of all faiths and heritages are welcome. Our program teaches appreciation and respect for God’s creation and for each other. Parents are encouraged to make an appointment to visit and observe part of our school day.
Play will be the center of the curriculum, in which young children learn to solve problems, to clarify concepts, and to express ideas.
Our goal is to help children: foster a positive sense of self; respect other people; develop good social relationships.
