NURSERY - PRE-K
From its origin in 1983, we have provided Christ-centered early education and child care to tri-county families like yours.
Our aim is to strengthen each child:
- Spiritually – by providing the comfort and security of loving relationships, warm environments and simple truths which will develop a child's foundational moral character and nurture their love for God.
- Physically – by offering a wide variety of experiences which will develop a child's large and small muscle coordination and motor skills.
- Socially & Emotionally – by encouraging participation and cooperation in group activities and getting along with others which will develop a child's sense of security, confidence in their abilities, and belonging.
- Intellectually – by exploring and using first-hand experiences which will develop a child's capacity and enthusiasm for learning.
Our Pre-school Handbook will help with the policies and procedures used in our operation.
Programming and Curriculum
During a child's first years of life, there are many "windows of opportunity" - critical and prime times for acquiring new skills. Our pre-school programming - quality early education publishers (Abeka, ACSI, Saxon, Scholastic, Bob Jones, etc.), stimulating environments, staff screening and professional development, quality children’s literature, scheduling, and even toy choices - is designed with the whole child’s optimum development in mind.
Our Pre-school Curriculum Map details the programming used in each classroom.
As (age) appropriate, specialty area instruction is offered and includes:
