The mission of Elisabetta Renzi Child Development Center is to provide a loving, caring, Christian environment for children. The Center is owned and administered by the Sisters of Our Lady of Sorrows, a Congregation of religious women. As a result, gospel values play a big role in the life of the Center, mindful that education without some knowledge of God is not complete.
The concern of the Center is to educate the whole child: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical.
We believe in giving the child the freedom to explore and experience in a rich, stimulating, environment with guidance from teachers. The child will learn eagerly, lead by his or her own natural curiosity and desire to understand the world. The future of the child is based on the experiences of his or her early years, therefore we believe in helping the child:
to feel good about oneself
to develop a sense of worth
to see joy in the goodness and beauty of the world
to have the ability to trust others
to give oneself through sharing and helping
to recognize the rights and needs of other persons
It is in these attitudes toward the self, the world, and others that we hope the children entrusted to us will learn.
May God Bless you! The Sisters of Our Lady of Sorrows
