To have a school that provides a place for a child to develop to his/her fullest spiritually, academically, culturally and morally. We feel that this can be accomplished through a loving, warm and nurturing atmosphere geared toward building a child's self-esteem.
- that a child learns best in a nurturing Christian atmosphere and from a variety of experiences;
- that creating a feeling of self-worth (self-image) is important in each child;
- that the development of social skills should be a major emphasis for children in the program;
- that the activities and experiences should be appropriate to the child's stage of development.
