MISSION STATEMENT St. Christopher’s Episcopal Preschool was established as an educational extension of St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church outreach program. The preschool provides an early childhood Christian learning environment, where children are encouraged to become lifelong learners. The preschool focuses on a whole child development methodology to include the spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development of its students.
PHILOSOPHY We believe in creating developmentally appropriate Christian based activities and practices that are: -Based on what we know about how young children learn -Relevant to children’s life experiences -Based on the children’s current knowledge and abilities -Respectful of cultural and individual differences and learning styles -Responsive to the interests and needs of the children -Focused on the learning process, not the end product -Thought provoking - stimulating and challenging the minds of young children -Based on the philosophy that children are competent and trustworthy, and can make good decisions if given the opportunity and practice
