Our Program

Our program is designed to provide active and quiet, child-selected and teacher-directed activities.

Play is vital to growing children and is a major portion of our class time. Our classroom is set up with activity and learning centers that permit children to experiment and explore their environment. We want every child to be successful and feel good about him or herself.

The religious curriculum will include Bible stories and/or lessons about sharing, loving and forgiving. These lessons will help your child understand that Christ loves us and wants us to love others.

We also provide instruction in letters, numbers, shapes, reading readiness, music, creative arts and physical education. To prepare the children for easy transition to Kindergarten, we strive to increase the child’s skill in listening, self-discipline, conversation, creative self-expression and to develop the ability to work and play independently and cooperatively.

Through Christian love, we strive to teach the children to share thoughts, ideas, toys, equipment, time, friends and themselves. The children’s daily experiences, discoveries and happenings at school will help them expand their perceptions of God, people and the world in which God has placed us. A great deal of emphasis will be placed on the formation of a positive self-image and healthy relationships with others.

The Stretch-N-Grow program is designed to promote exercise and wellness for preschool-aged children.  It assists parents and child care providers in developing good health and fitness habits in young children.  The program is taught at child care facilities by a well trained Stretch-N-Grow coach.  Stretch-N-Grow Stars participate in weekly sessions, which include exercise, activities, and discussions on health and related issues such as nutrition, hygiene and safety.  Stars have lots of fun while they learn to enjoy exercise and build good habits.
