Philosophy

Mission Basilica School Preschool is guided by the teachings of the Catholic Church, and current research and best practices in early childhood education. We are dedicated to the following values:
 
  • Parents as the primary educators  - partnering with parents in their child’s education
  • Children are spiritual -  and have a natural desire to develop a personal relationship with God and participate in the liturgical life of the Church
  • Development of the whole child - in the fundamentals, stewardship, fine arts, leadership, technology, and community service
  • Community  - actively living and serving in a faith community preparing for a life of service and leadership
  • Collaboration - challenged to become creative, reflective, problem solvers and decision makers
  • Social justice - community and responsibility is not confined to the classroom but includes to the world around us
  • Intrinsic motivation - creating life-long learners who will be challenged to think critically
  • Active learning - taking an active role in the learning process rather than passively absorbing information or practicing skills
  • Respecting the dignity of the child -attentive to each child’s differences, growth patterns, and interests; and present an emergent curriculum that meets the needs of every child as he/she develops
