Our Mission Statement

The Vocationist Sisters at Magic Kingdom Day Nursery and Kindergarten are committed to excellence in early childhood education. By providing a program dedicated to the appropriate growth and development of young children within an outstanding and compassionate learning environment, we are helping children to build an excellent and enduring foundation for future academic, social and spiritual development.

We are dedicated to presenting an encompassing curriculum which addresses the many dimensions of young children and fosters social interaction, intellectual stimulation, spiritual awareness, physical development, and emotional growth.

An essential component of our mission at Magic Kingdom Day Nursery and Kindergarten is to provide a safe, nurturing and loving environment in which to optimize each child’s growth and potential to expand at his or her individual pace. It is our mission to inspire the children with a love of learning, and provide them with the foundations for literacy.

A love of self and others is an integral part of life-long learning and long-term success, and to fulfill this mission, we encourage the development of well-rounded individuals who represent themselves and others, and who welcome and appreciate diverse religious and cultural backgrounds.

Because children look to us as models for their self-image, we include, as part of our school mission, our own striving for excellence by honoring, maintaining and enhancing our own knowledge, skills and many human dimensions.

Our Philosophy

At Magic Kingdom Day Nursery & Kindergarten, we believe that human development can be stimulated, encouraged and motivated. For this development to be positive and enduring, children must be allowed to create and gather learning experiences at their unique rate of development, and to feel successful at learning without pressure. At Magic Kingdom, we provide a safe, clean, high quality child care facility offering a stimulating learning experience within a loving a caring atmosphere. Here the children can grow and develop because they feel known and loved. Here they can learn more about themselves, others, and the world.

We know how easily children feel the impact of the world around them, and so we are diligent in maintaining a stable atmosphere with efficient management, continual staff training and a strong dedication to the children. To meet this essential commitment to our children we:

  • Understand the power of our words and encourage the children to progress academically and emotionally through words of praise or encouragement when needed, or after a task or performance has been accomplished.
  • Seek the help of parents or guardians in the education of their children.
  • Use play to assist children in acquiring knowledge of their environment so they may have the opportunity to express and represent what they know or imagine.
  • Establish a partnership between parents and the school. This bond, coupled with the child’ participation and development in a loving and nurturing environment, will set the stage for growth.
  • Afford the children varied and meaningful experiences that enable them to develop emotionally, intellectually, and socially.
