Children nowadays are quite different because of the advent and mass availability of today's new technology. Now, information is so easily available and accessible through several avenues and portals, such as the media or the internet. As a result, today's parents are continually challenged by the additional anxiety of filtering what is seen, heard, and learned by their children. After all, what very young impressionable minds might perceive as "right" or "normal" may be instilled in them and ultimately affect their choices, character, and how they fit into society in the future.
With these challenges in mind, Ivan and Bernard were called by God to build a school with the passion to minister, develop, and train the children of this new generation
. Having young children of their own only emphasized the need and challenge to raise future Christian Leaders
, men and women of God who live by Biblical teachings and Principles
Armed with faith, passion, and a bright outlook, these two friends set out to establish Leaders International Christian School
in the latter-half of 2009. Their passion has transcended into envisioning an education system that encompasses the essential tools for nurturing young Christians; They believe in harnessing each child's special and unique facets not only by the traditional approach, but more especially by instilling Christian Character
and developing Life Skills
within young people so they are ready to take on today's ever-changing world.
As such, the School is founded on the reality that all children deserve love, attention, and nurturing, not only in the home, but also equally important in the school setting. The founders believe that a safe and loving environment allows young minds to explore and grow. At Leaders International Christian School
, children are privileged to have hands-on learning experiences which foster age appropriate development. They are read-to everyday and taught the Schools culture. Positive reinforcement is important for children to develop self-esteem, as children need an environment that supports free expression which stimulates learning. Most importantly, the children have fun and are taught with consistent Christian Values
and perspectives in life which are based on the Bible:
Proverbs 22:6 (NASB):
"Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it."
