Mature, caring, dedicated, Christian teachers provide a safe, nurturing educational environment for our children. This is a school of true substance, not fluff and hype. The Montessori model allows each child to develop skills at his/her own pace. The activities are fun and inviting. Each day includes circle time, stories, songs, sharing, prayer, work time, and outdoor play on a beautiful, shaded playground. At pick-up time, the teachers always provide details of each child's accomplishments and highlights. Out of respect for family time, there are not a lot of extra-curricular activities. But, there is Grandparent Day, Dad's Night, Mom's Night, a Parents' Night Out/Christmas Party, and parent-teacher conferences.
A major difference at this school is how children are taught to be caring and thoughtful towards each other, and how to settle differences in a fair, peacful manner. I could never send my children anywhere else!
