Mission and Philosophy
Our Preschool’s Mission & Philosophy
Proverbs 22:6 says: “Teach a child to choose the right path, and when he is older he will remain upon it.”
Believing that, our goal is to provide God centered learning experiences that will develop the students’ maximum spiritual, intellectual, social, physical and emotional potential. We also seek to instill in our students a positive self-image and a respect for God and our fellow man. This will be achieved by providing a total educational experience based upon the word of God.
St. Olaf Preschool teachers and staff realize that each child grows at his/her own rate. We use learning resources to create a nurturing and Christian environment where each child is accepted as one of Christ’s own and experiences His love. Through daily reading of Bible and Christian-based stories, each student will grow spiritually and will develop a love of learning as well as a relationship with Jesus Christ. Students will be shown how to give and receive forgiveness.
