The Yellow School at MDPC is an extension of the Christian Education ministry of the church. The early years of life are the most important for laying foundations for faith and for social, emotional, and cognitive development. Knowing this, The Yellow School:
- provides each child with acceptance, respect, and love by caring adults in a Christian environment;
- offers a place where they can embrace their uniqueness as children of God, develop new relationships, and learn about their expanding world;
- creates opportunities to explore, experiment, make decisions, and learn to problem solve; and
- uses curricula to teach the skills needed for future school success (literacy, language, math, science, and social studies).
We encourage curiosity and independence. As they experience opportunities for accomplishment, children develop a positive self-image, a sense of self-worth, and the ability to self-regulate. Our staff members serve as positive role models, guiding students through a balance of child-directed and teacher-directed activities. Each child is unique and must be allowed to grow and develop at their own pace.
We believe the love of God binds us together. In that love, we welcome and respect all faiths and provide a welcoming and loving community in which children learn to work and play with others; to respect property and the rights of others; and to learn of God’s love for us all.
