Mission Statement
Every child deserves the chance to participate, learn & grow in a high quality, loving & exciting environment that supports faith, family & community.
Philosophy
FKS believes in a play based learning environment and uses Creative Curriculum principles to support our efforts.  Learning in our space and using these resources encourages both child-initiated and teacher-directed activities. The role of a teacher is to provide developmentally appropriate programming for each age group, to nurture social/emotional development, to coach during conflict resolution and to give encouragement in self help/independent efforts. The follow-up to this is to assess childrens’ growth while supporting, educating and communicating as a team with parents. A teacher also ensures that the children’s learning environment is clean, safe and stimulating.
