Biblical Values

WEE World's biblical values provide for the developmental needs of the child and the intrinsic values of the Christian faith.

At WEE World we believe:

  • Children learn best when they feel safe and loved.
  • Preschoolers learn through exploration, play, and experience.
  • While children generally develop according to predictable stages; they are all different and must be directed, challenged, and encouraged according to their God-designed path of growth and development.

WEE World Child Development Center admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

The Baptist Faith and Message explains the foundation for our beliefs. You can view a complete copy here.
