"Candle, candle, shining bright, 
Share with us your golden light"

It is my philosophy that "play" is the work of the young child; imitation is the special talent and natural way of learning. Domestic life inspires our daily routine and rhythm of Little Flower Preschool.

Children need people to respect, adults whose example and loving authority they follow. They need a range of experience-tenderness and kindness, boldness and courage, even mischief and misbehavior. Children need to be introduced to life of principle, and given the freedom to discover their own.
