Vision – Loving Learning, Learning to Love
We are a school for early childhood development that nurtures in our children the joy of learning, creative exploration, and the seeds of strong moral character. The FCS experience is a door that opens a child to the wonders of the world that God loves. Faith development is an integral part of the growth process and enables students to successfully achieve a positive place for themselves in society. As part of the First Christian Church family, we are supported by an open, welcoming, and compassionate congregation of disciples of Jesus.
Mission – The FCS Experience
From caring for our infants through preparing our Pre-K students for elementary school, we equip each unique child to joyfully learn and grow through active, developmentally-appropriate work-play experiences which allow her or him to create, explore, express, discover, understand and make decisions in a safe, positive, diverse, and Christ-centered environment. We believe that optimum learning takes place in an environment that is accepting, by teachers who respect each child and her or his varied background, experiences, knowledge, personalities, experiences, and needs. For our parents we provide proactive and individualized feedback on the developmental growth and progression of their children.
Core Values – “You will know them by their fruit.” – Matthew 7:20
At FCS, we believe that sowing the seeds of strong moral character is as important as academic development. These seeds form the foundation of good decision making, and make academic knowledge relevant. Thus, we intentionally teach and model the following eight core values – these are “The Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23):” Love & Respect, Joy, Patience, Kindness, Gentleness, Self-Control, Peace & Goodness.
