The Gateway To Our Community
The Lord Jesus Christ, who is King over all areas of life, is honoured in the total environment of the Kindergarten: in its curriculum, its teaching strategies, its discipline and tone in inter-personal relationships.
Children are encouraged to have a special relationship with God and are therefore challenged to respond to Him in faith and obedience. The Christian Kindergarten, as an extension of the family, exists to help parents in their God-given task of bringing up their children to know the Lord by submitting to the authority of the Bible. Basic to the school’s philosophy are therefore two principles. These are:
* Parents are primarily responsible for the education of their children.
* All areas of life, including education and schooling, are directed by Biblical principles.
Therefore the child’s home and the Kindergarten/School, along with teachers, work in harmony with respect to the child’s education. This harmony is evident in the Christian attitudes, principles and values fostered in the Centre. The Centre’s educational practices and standards are guided by Biblical principles. In its discipline and tone, the Centre’s aim is to nurture the child in the truth of God and His direction for our lives.
The Kindergarten program will recognise that all children are different and develop at different rates. All children have different God-given individual characteristics from birth which help to form unique personalities.
PLAY is the way a young child learns. Children learn through their ability to touch, manipulate and experiment with material and through their interaction with others.
PLAY provides the foundation for academic learning or school learning. It is the preparation children need before they learn formally in school.
PLAY is the work of early childhood.
