Our Goals are:

  • To provide an atmosphere in which each child is helped to experience God’s love and wonders of God’s creation
  • To provide a safe atmosphere in which each child is lovingly respected and accepted as an individual with his / her own special needs
  • To encourage the child’s physical maturity by providing equipment and materials to develop coordination
  • To stimulate curiosity and awareness of the environment by exposing the child to activities related to his / her physical world
  • To encourage imagination and creativity by providing experiences with different art media and musical activities, as well as dramatic play
  • To foster each child’s development, at his/her own pace, into an emotionally healthy individual with a good feeling of self-identity and personal worth secure and comfortable in the world around him.
