Our Philosophy

St. Luke's Day Care strives to meet the needs of infant, preschool and school-age children while their parents are at work or study. We seek to make all parents and children feel loved and accepted during their time with us.

We believe that our primary function is to help each child develop a positive self-image. To further this goal, we build on the strengths of each child to help them feel good about themselves. We encourage children to understand that each person is unique and yet all people share certain feelings that need to be respected. We treat each child with respect and dignity so that the child will feel accepted and comfortable.

We believe that children are naturally curious and eager to learn. We provide numerous opportunities for children to explore by providing experiences in and out of the center. Field trips and special visitors expand the children's experiences on which they can build.

We believe in helping each child achieve his or her full potential through physical, emotional, social and academic skills.

PHYSICALLY through the development of large and small muscles.

EMOTIONALLY through the expression of feelings and the understanding that it is okay to be different.

SOCIALLY through sharing and playing together.

ACADEMICALLY through group and individual expereinces in language arts, mathematics, science and social studies.

All children are special. It is our goal to nurture that uniqueness and creativity while preparing them for the future.

Lastly, we at St. Luke's believe that the parent-teacher relationship is essential in a child's success. In order to encourage a positive relationship, we believe in an open door policy where you, the parent can visit at any time your child is with us.
