Our Mission

Our mission is to support the family by extending the ministry of North Oxford Baptist Church by providing a biblically based, age appropriate weekday education to infants, pre- school, and school age children.  We will love, nurture and teach each child by God’s example.  Our words will encourage, our actions will be gentle, and our hearts will love unconditionally.

Our Purpose

We know every child is fearfully and wonderfully made, and is a priceless Masterpiece designed by God. Our purpose is to help each child reach his or her full potential by recognizing the child as a unique, special creation of God and to design and implement a high quality early childhood program of activities and experiences that will develop each child mentally, physically, spiritually, socially, and emotionally.

Our Philosophy

Children learn best through play in a safe, nurturing environment that encourages hand-on experiences.  Our program encourages and promotes positive development and learning by providing opportunities for discovery, hands-on experiences, imaginative free play, observation, and positive peer and adult interactions. The play environment encourages appropriate and positive development across a wide range of domains while building
