Brick Church School

  • The Brick Church School was founded by The Brick Presbyterian Church in 1940 to provide an early childhood education program for the children of members of the Church.
  • It soon expanded to include children from the surrounding community.
  • In 1985, a goal was established that 10% of the students receive financial assistance, a standard which the School has consistently exceeded.
  • As an integral part of the life and mission of the Church, the School conducts a weekly chapel service where children are encouraged to live in relationship with each other and the world in light of God's love for them and all things.
  • In an atmosphere of warmth and mutual respect, teachers strive to help each child to function as a member of a community, to understand their own and other's rights and needs, and to enjoy playing and working with peers.
  • The school aspires to enhance the children's self-confidence through appreciation of their ventures in all areas and through a concerted effort to develop their independence so that they can exercise a growing control over themselves and their ability to influence their environment positively.
  • A sense of order in the classroom makes this possible; children are taught what is expected of them and where to find the resources they need.
  • The children's developmental needs and interests form the basis of the curriculum.
  • Continual assessment of the children and curriculum leads to a flexible program in which each child is appropriately challenged.
  • The school strives for the best balance between freedom of choice for the child and teacher direction so that children learn to make choices as well as to follow instructions.
  • Children are guided to insure they experience all areas of the curriculum.
