Mission

Believing…

that the Church can provide an environment in which the child may grow “in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.”

St. Anne’s Day School offers a program consistent with the highest standards of quality early childhood education.  In an environment of love and respect, each child has the opportunity to expand his/her concept of the world.  Our well-rounded program provides for developmentally appropriate growth emotionally, cognitively, socially, and physically, as well as spiritually.  Children have the opportunity to initiate choices of experiences, as well as having educator- initiated experiences.  These experiences encourage a spirit of inquiry, problem solving, and higher level thinking in a creative learning environment.  Most of all, St. Anne’s Day School wants each child to know that he/she is a worthy person, acceptable and lovable just as God made him/her.  Having a good self-concept and the opportunity to learn in a developmentally appropriate environment are gifts that last a lifetime.

PEDAGOGICAL MISSION STATEMENT

As part of our commitment to continually reflect upon and analyze our work and growth as a school, the 2008-2009 faculty members collaboratively wrote this Pedagogical Mission Statement.  As is true with everything we do, it is a work in progress that we will continue to revisit and revise as necessary

To promote a nurturing environment, rich in complexity, where children, families, and educators alike are respected as competent individuals.  We strive to cultivate a collaborative learning community where relationships can develop and thrive; exploration is encouraged, and learning processes are sustained.
