“Let the children come to me. Then Jesus took the children into His arms and placed His hands on their heads and He blessed them.
So says the Bible verses from Mark 10:14-16. As Jesus loved and valued the uniqueness of each child, we at Carpenter’s Kids Preschool and Kindergarten believe we should do no less. We believe God has created each child with much potential and we strive to celebrate the uniqueness of each one of His creations. Therefore we set goals to make the most of each individual.
- We want to work with families to help each child feel accepted and loved at school.
- We want each child to gain self-confidence, to have opportunities to develop independence, and to take personal responsibility for making wise choices.
- We want to help children develop a sense of values and to appreciate God and His creation.
- By providing successful experiences, we hope to build a foundation that says learning is fun and I can do it!
“Teach these things to your children as you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
Deuteronomy 6:7 shows us that learning takes place at different times of the day and in different settings. It is for this reason that we divide our classrooms into learning centers. The centers include language, blocks, art, puzzles, books, math, science, and both fine motor and gross motor activities. In our environment we hope the budding artist can begin their masterpieces, the young scientist can explore and predict, the emerging writer can represent their ideas. We pray we provide the environment to allow your child to grow.
