PHILOSOPHY & GOALS

We believe that balanced growth is best achieved by encouraging development of the whole child. Emphasis is placed on meeting the child's physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual needs through the sharing of Christian values in a loving atmosphere of acceptance, trust, and structured freedom. Each day the preschool provides the children with a safe, secure environment for fostering independenece and self-awareness. Our curriculum is based on the belief that children "learn by doing". Each age group is provided with ages appropriate guidelines that challenge that child to explore, experiment with, and better understand the wonders of his or her world. Our program is part of the education and outreach ministries of Warrenton United Methodist Church. The program is open to all children regardless of race, gender, color, or religious affiliation.
