THE MISSION OF W.E.E. SCHOOL
Our purpose is to promote the development of the "whole child" according to Luke 2:52, "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man."
The main goal of this program is to provide a safe, nurturing environment that fosters social, mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical growth for children aged two to five. This is accomplished by helping each child to feel loved and accepted, and by fostering a joy and eagerness for learning that will last a lifetime.
