A Nurturing Atmosphere

“Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible – the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family,” ~ Virginia Satir

Japhet’s mission is to nurture and prepare each child for life by integrating character education with a strong academic program.  Nurturing is the foundation of everything we do.

Nurture is defined as helping something or someone grow, develop, or succeed. Japhet’s goal is to help each child grow, develop, and succeed as far are they are capable of during the time we share with them. We educate the whole child, integrating both character and academics. We provide a safe place where children are appreciated, where they can make mistakes, and where they can flourish, very much like a family.

During our 2011 ISACS School Survey two-thirds of our parents commented that our nurturing environment is one of our most important strengths.  Here’s what they had to say:

  • “The feeling of family, trusting my child to be in Japhet’s care is really important.”
  • “The strengths are the close relationships formed between the students and faculty.”
  • “Very nurturing environment for parents and students.”
  • “Strong character education and nurturing of the children in a safe and positive environment.”
  • “Nurturing environment and emphasis on character education are definitely strengths.”
  • “The staff is amazing. I am so glad my child is influenced by them everyday.”
