Philosophy of Education

Prince of Peace School believes children learn best and have the most fun learning, when opportunities are given to be hands-on and play-based! Although Prince of Peace School is well-known for successfully helping children learn developmentally appropriate academic concepts, we maintain our commitment to learning that nurtures the playful heart of the child!
