SaFe Day Mission Statement
Because Jesus welcomed children and encouraged us to welcome them in His name, we at Santa Fe Presbyterian Church affirm that all children are a gift from God; all children are a gift to the whole community; all children have the right to be children; and all children are not just tomorrow, they are today. Santa Fe Presbyterian Church demonstrates its obedience to Christ’s mandate by operating Santa Fe Day School (SaFe Day).
SaFe Day Philosophy
Santa Fe Day School’s purpose is to “Expand Tomorrow’s Horizons by Enriching Lives Today”. By providing a balance of developmentally appropriate activities and play, our school enhances physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development. There is a focus on the process of learning instead of solely outcome. This means that the emphasis we place on providing opportunities for children to observe, seek, investigate, and acquire information to think critically, may not result in lots of eye-appealing results for taking home. We recognize each child as an individual, with unique growing patterns, learning styles, and interests. Our staff will be responsive to individual needs and will maintain an atmosphere of respect and acceptance. Santa Fe Day School promotes independence, self-reliance, self-discipline, and a sense of belonging for all children.
