Mission and Goals

Our Mission

The mission of Little School is to work at transforming lives through a Christ-centered program that is committed to the physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual development of each child.


Our Philosophy

Learning through play and exploration is the heart of our curriculum.  The emphasis is on helping children to interact, cooperate and grow together in community.  We create a healthy environment for children to learn problem solving skills and explore the world around them.  The children are encouraged to ask questions, to make choices and decisions, and to become more independent.


Our Goals

Our curriculum is based on learning through developmentally appropriate activities.  Little School seeks to help children learn and grow in a positive Christian atmosphere.  To accomplish this, we focus on the following:

  • Knowing God as Creator and Friend
  • Getting to know oneself and encouraging a positive self-concept
  • Discovering the world around us
  • Learning to get along and cooperate with others with focus on the “Fruits of the Spirit”
  • Growing spiritually, physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively

In an effort to achieve these goals, our curriculum offers the following areas of enrichment:

  • Fine Arts
