Giving Children a Happy Place
To Grown and Learn
Children's work is play. We encourage our children to experiment and explore in an environment free from failure. When engaged in creative thinking activities, it is important that there is no right or wrong answer, and that all answers are acceptable. In this type of environment, children develop the ability to see problems and challenges from new perspectives, think differently about solutions and alternative approaches, and attempt solutions without judgement or criticism.
Our "Vet Clinic" is where we learn how to care for God's creatures.

The Rev. Deacon Vicki Miller
"My vision for every child is to help them discover their own talents and how they can use them to make their world a better place! "
"I love to watch children play, learn and grow. My favorite thing is to introduce them to new possibilities, and helping them to discover the
world around them. "
"I believe in developing the whole child. I attend to both the process and the product of a child's learning journey, valuing children's learning steps as well
as their accomplishments. "
