The mission of the Neptune Baptist W.E.E. School is to provide quality care, education and development opportunities for each child to reach his/her potential--spiritually, mentally, physically, socially and emotionally. Our objectives are:
to teach the love of God and the promise of eternal life
develop a child-centered program focusing on an "I can" attitude, academic readiness and respect for self and others
provide the opportunity for each child to recognize long term rewards for good choices
uphold the family by providing a warm, enthusiastic, highly competent staff that recognizes the importance of setting the proper example as role models of the Christian life
Early Childhood Education research reveals the importance of the formative years. Children's minds, bodies, and spirits develop most rapidly and with extreme ease during this time. Their experiences significantly influence their overall development and attitudes. Children are individuals, developing at their own pace and having distinct needs, varying learning styles and abilities. Concepts regarding God, Jesus, the Bible, the church, self, the family, others and the natural world are the basis of our curriculum. Biblical values, traditional family lifestyles and multicultural values are instilled as we teach that God has a different plan for each individual.
