Kindergarten Philosophy

Jesus said, "...let the little ones come to me...don't hold them back. They too are part of my kingdom." 
Matthew 19:14

Kindergarten is one of the first big steps in your child's journey through his or her school adventure. It is our goal that your child feels successful in all that he or she tries. In the classroom, we will create a partnership between home and school so that your child will develop spiritually, mentally, socially and physically to the best of his or her ability.
