Educational Philosophy

We are committed to providing a safe and Christ-centered, age-appropriate early learning environment that allows children to engage in meaningful play and real work experiences. Beginning Steps Ministry’s educational philosophy is based on early childhood research and identified best practices for young children.

  • Optimal learning occurs in the context of safety. Creating a connected learning community establishes the sense of safety in the classroom.
  • Learning environments should provide children with opportunities to explore, discover, create and interact with others and the environment. Learning environments should also provide opportunities for communication, developing self-esteem, and self-control.
  • Family involvement in the child’s early learning experiences maximizes the child’s growth and development potential.
