WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that each child is created in the image of God and is a child of God. Ours to cherish, protect, nurture and guide in a way that would be pleasing to Him, we treat them as the gifts they are.
WE EMBRACE DIFFERENCES AND WE FOSTER INDIVIDUALITY
At the same time, we embrace our children’s differences and celebrate diversity realizing that not all children’s personalities, learning styles, interests, and needs are the same, we accommodate and support each child in a way that fosters individuality.
WE TRULY CONNECT WITH FAMILIES
We recognize that to “support” children means truly making a connection with families. We believe that can only be achieved through personal relationships with parents, daily dialogues with them, and a sense of understanding that each family is unique and has their own dynamics, values, and aspirations for their children. This respect towards families is essential for our children’s growth and happiness.
WE PROMOTE PEER MENTORING AND A PROFESSIONAL STAFF GROWTH
At Westbrook Academy, our professional staff value and support each other. Our program is a collaborative effort; a team teaching approach that promotes peer mentoring, positive interactions, continued professional growth and a positive environment for staff, children, and families.
