Organizational Profile Our goal at Compass is to provide each child with high-quality learning in a loving Christian environment. Our programs strive to be an extension of the family setting, designed to give parents a support system, educational choice and peace of mind. Our preschool program focuses on educating the whole child through varied and purposeful experiential learning. We believe educating the whole child includes spiritual, emotional/social, intellectual and physical. Learning occurs throughout the day but will be structured in 30-minute learning segments. At Compass, each child's journey unfolds daily. Our programs help guide students along the path, providing the tools needed for a meaningful and grace-filled future.
