Foundational Seeds Planted Today
Mount Olive believes that each child is a special gift from God, and the next generation of leaders. God gives parents the primary responsibility for nurturing their children, so our teachers assist parents in the growth of their child in a Christian environment. We embrace a curriculum where children learn through hands-on experiences with active participation in natural curiosity. We strive for an atmosphere providing love, trust and respect by offering developmentally appropriate practices encouraging their spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development. As redeemed children of God, these children will daily be reminded that Jesus is their Savior from sin, and that God has prepared a home for them in heaven.
