OUR VALUES

  • We value every child regardless of their background, behavior, or life situation. It is our desire to help every child reach his/her full potential in life by providing cognitive, physical, emotional, social and spiritual learning environments.
  • At Faith Academy, we treat children with the dignity and respect they deserve as human beings, help give them attention, affection and care by teaching, guiding, and modeling for each child in a loving way.
  • We believe all children can learn. We believe children learn best through relevant, active, play-based learning experiences. We value the importance of creative expression within safe guidelines.
  • At Faith Academy, we provide a variety of hands-on learning experiences to foster each child’s development. We encourage children to investigate, discover and inquire about their surroundings.
  • We believe parents hold the sacred responsibility for raising children to honor the Lord, His creation, His Word, and others. Faith Academy seeks to partner with, not replace, parents to help grow their children into the people God created them to be.
  • At Faith Academy, we seek to give children the best possible care and work alongside parents to help children develop into successful, content, and character-filled individuals.
  • We believe the greatest influence in the life of a child is the example that others set before him/her. We believe the character of our staff and attitude of Faith Academy needs to be positive, dependable, and morally excellent.
  • At Faith Academy, we expect all staff members to represent good Christian morals and maintain a positive attitude throughout the day. Our goal is that each staff member will set a good example for the children in attitude, speech and actions.
  • We believe that anything worth doing is worth doing with excellence, and that there could be no more worthy cause than influencing young children to become the best that they can be.
  • At Faith Academy, we strive to maintain a spirit of excellence in our facilities, curriculum and staff. We will always remain open-minded to suggestions on how we can improve the quality of our care.
  • In accordance with the National Association of the Education of Young Children, at Faith Academy we strive to:
  • Work in partnership with families, establishing and maintaining regular, ongoing, two-way communication
  • Teachers share information with families about classroom rules, expectations, and routines not only at enrollment but also as needed throughout the year.
  • Teachers foster children’s emotional well-being by demonstrating respect for children and creating a positive emotional climate as reflected in behaviors such as frequent social conversations, joint laughter, and affection.
  • Teachers encourage children’s appropriate expression of emotions, both positive (e.g., joy, pleasure, excitement) and negative (e.g., anger, frustration, sadness).
  • Teachers anticipate and take steps to prevent potential behavior problems.
  • Teaching staff promote pro-social behavior by interacting in a respectful manner with all staff and children.
  • Teachers help individual children learn socially appropriate behavior by providing guidance that is consistent with the child’s level of development.
  • Teachers will use their knowledge of individual children to modify strategies and materials to enhance children’s learning.
  • Children will have varied opportunities to develop skills for entering into social groups, developing friendships, learning to help, and other pro-social behavior.
  • Children are provided varied opportunities and materials that encourage them to discuss scientific, mathematical, artistic, language and Bible concepts in everyday conversation.
  • The staff will encourage families to raise concerns and work collaboratively with them to find mutually satisfying solutions that teachers can then incorporate into classroom practice.
