The Preschool: The Faith, Hope & Love Child Care & Learning Center

The Springs of Living Water having the mothers and single parents desiring to work in mind, formalized and established the Faith, Hope & Love Child Care & Learning Center. It aimed to provide a safe and nurturing place for children of mothers who have been trained under the Job Enhancement Training Programs and parents especially under Welfare who are ready to go out and be assimilated to the workplace. A start-up capital for the preschool was provided by Atherton Foundation, Samuel N. & Mary Castle Foundation and the Bank of Hawaii. The Preschool was duly licensed by the Department of Human Services, the Department of Health and the City and County on March 24, 2002 to operate and admit 45 children of ages between 2 to 5 years old.

School Philosophy

The Child Care and Learning Center was established with the premise that each child is unique and special, regardless of race, color, nationality, religion or ethnic origin and deserves a warm and caring environment in which to learn. Together with the home our common goal is to build a good and strong foundation for each child’s future. We believe that children learn by doing and imitation. Through our Christian values, good example, dedication and love for each child, we hope to have a positive effect on their attitude towards learning and life.

Program Goals

Our goal is to enhance the development of readiness skills through our learning materials in an enriched learning environment; promote family involvement through program activities; encourage the development of creativity; all of which help to build a successful foundation for early leaning.
