Our Mission & Philosophy
Our Savior's New Horizons
Christian Preschool Mission and Philosophy
"Helping young hearts, minds
and bodies explore new
horizons with Jesus."
At Our Savior's New Horizons Christian Preschool, our mission is to help young children explore and expand their horizons with Jesus. At "New Horizons" we believe that no one is ever too young to know Jesus!
("Jesus said, 'Let the children come to me, do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God." ~Mark 10:14)
Our curriculum based programs center around four goals:
1. The Heart
We believe that God's love is the foundation for a lifetime of Christian growth. It is our goal to work with families to help develop this foundation.
("And you shall teach the commandments to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down and when you rise."
2. The Mind
A key element to fostering each child's creative mind and thinking skills is FUN. Children will experience "fun" learning in a variety of areas, with a special emphasis on language and literacy enhancement.
("Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. ~Proverbs 22:6)
3. The Body
Children have great energy--in mind and body. Our curriculum includes activities that encourage movement and play.
(Be strong. Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded. ~1/2 Chronicles 15:7)
Children will practice social skills and be encouraged to act in a repectful manner towards adults. We will also work to enrich each child's self esteem by concentrating on their unique talents and abilities.
("The Lord, your God, is in your midst...he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exalt over you with loud singing."
At New Horizons Christian Preschool, we believe that each of these four goal areas is important and critical for overall growth. Furthermore, we believe that each of these four goal areas are interrelated and directly impact each other. For these reasons, New Horizons will work to foster growth for the whole child-mind, Spirit, and body-to help each individual student reach his or her maximum potential.
