— Our Mission—

Our mission is to provide high quality junior kindergarten education in a stimulating, exciting, supportive and academically enriching environment. Through the use of innovative materials, highly skilled teachers and creative teaching methods, Pacific Shores Day School will strive to exceed families’ expectations while preparing children for kindergarten education and fostering a lifetime love of learning.

— Purpose & Goals —

Pacific Shores Day School strives to:

  • Foster children's creativity, curiosity and love of learning through purposeful interactions with peers, adults and the school environment
  • Enhance social skills through encouraging meaningful conversations with peers, participation in group discussions, role playing and pretend play
  • Develop sense of self-control, self confidence and responsibility by setting clear, consistent and fair behavioral boundaries and expectations
  • Strengthen fine and gross motor skills by incorporating a balanced variety of gross and fine motor skill activities each day
  • Provide a warm, supportive environment where children receive the nurturing and positive reinforcement they require to excel and reach their full potential
  • Introduce and build understanding and competency in all of the key developmental subjects to equip children for success in kindergarten and beyond
  • Promote the development of problem-solving and decision-making skills through child-initiated exploration, investigation and discovery
  • Strengthen children’s ability to empathize with others through modeling respect, concern, kindness, gentleness and caring from a Christian perspective
  • Provide opportunities for children to interact with one another in a setting conducive to the development of wholesome social relationships
  • Present opportunities for meaningful play based on each child’s individual interests and the interests of the group as a whole
  • Nurture positive, trusting and supportive relationships between children and teachers

— Our Promise—

We promise to be a partner with families and the community while working to transform "good students" into exceptional human beings from the inside out.  Rather than focus all of our attention on the development of I.Q., we firmly believe it is the E.Q., or Emotional Quotient, that is at the heart of every good student.

...that is the PSDS difference.
