Our Philosophy

Dover First Christian School pre-kindergarten through 8th Grade programs are highly academic and focus on teaching the whole child. We provide developmentally appropriate practices to develop the mind, body, and spiritual understanding in a loving Christ centered environment.

As experience is a marvelous teacher, we believe that children have to become involved to learn. They have to see, hear, feel, taste, and smell. Being involved in class means a lot of activity and mobility through the use of play, song, quiet times, and conversation all to develop the whole child.

We believe children need success, love, and fun as much as they need food, shelter, and clothing. Children are able to develop fully when they have a positive self image and continue to develop their overall potential. We laugh and smile everyday with the children affirming them and allowing them to understand we love, appreciate, and care for them while striving for excellence in all they accomplish.

What is an Educational Success Consultation?

As part of our commitment to the educational ministry of Dover First Christian School (DFCS), we have added an important component to our Admissions process: the educational success consultation with our Principal, Angela Singh. An educational success consultation is designed to actively engage and support parents in making wise educational decisions for their children. Each and every parent inquiry begins with a scheduled educational success consultation.

Whether the parents have made the decision to choose Dover First Christian School or they are still considering their options, this consultation will focus on parent’s aspirations and goals for their child, academic preparation, planning for future choices, faith and Christian leadership development. This will also help the school in numerous ways, should they choose Dover First Christian School, to better serve their child. Both parents are encouraged to attend the consultation.
