Philosophy

As a mission of the Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church, the Bradley Hills Nursery School seeks to provide a relaxed atmosphere of loving and caring in which children are encouraged to develop their own talents, uniqueness, and self-esteem. Bradley Hills nurtures all aspects of a child’s growth: social, emotional, physical, mental and spiritual. Nursery school is a group experience; therefore, our programs place an equal emphasis on helping the child learn the disciplines of social interactions and personal responsibility.

As a church-sponsored institution, the Bradley Hills Nursery School seeks to reflect Christian values in all of its activities. Stories, pictures and prayers drawn from Christian traditions are included in the curriculum.
