THE FINE PRINT

PHILOSOPHY

Adventure Kids Preschool believes that God has created children uniquely, each in his/her own special way. We believe that children learn through play and hands on experiences. We believe that faith in Jesus Christ permeates every aspect of learning. Our goal is to provide experiences to meet each preschooler’s individual needs in the areas of physical, social, emotional, creative, intellectual and spiritual nurture. We allow children to explore all areas of learning in his/her own creative way.
