  • Develops an awareness of the love of God
  • Provides developmentally appropriate curriculum in a Christian environment.
  • Provides opportunities for children to develop independence and self-confidence.
  • Fosters a child’s self-image through open-ended, multi-sensory, “hands-on” activities.
