CLASSES

INFANTS & TODDLERS

Children must be between 6 months and 23 months of age by September 1.
Classes available:  M/W, T/Th, M/W/F, T/Th/F, or M-F

The curriculum for the infants and toddlers promotes activities that stimulate growth and development that can be incorporated into the routines of the day. These classes provide a warm, loving, and rich environment that encourages social, cognitive, and physical growth to fully enhance and nurture each child’s school experience.  Behavioral development is closely observed so that each child is loved, encouraged and nurtured in a positive atmosphere.

2-YEAR OLDS

Children must be between 24 months and 35 months by September 1.
Classes available:  M/W/F, T/W/TH, T/Th, or M-F

The curriculum for the two-year-old classes provides interactive activities that enable children to develop a love of learning while they are playing and having fun. The classes provide a warm and friendly environment with hands-on, center-based activities to encourage early learning. Weekly theme units provide for activities in both large group and individual areas that move children toward their potential as they explore the manipulatives in the classroom.

3-YEAR OLD PRESCHOOL

Children must be 3 years old by September 1, and MUST be potty-trained.
Classes Available:  M/W/F, T/W/TH, T/TH, or M-F


The three-year-old curriculum is based on learning through play. Our goal is to introduce concepts and learn by experience. The curriculum offers hands-on learning experiences that promote the cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and creative development of each student. Centers in the classroom include the following: math, writing, reading, art, dramatic play, housekeeping, listening, block building and science.

4-YEAR OLD PRESCHOOL

Children must be 4 years old by September 1.
Classes Available:  M/W/F, T/W/TH, M-TH or M-F

The four-year-old program continues to build upon prior knowledge of the three-year-old preschool program. Active learning is encouraged through many hands-on experiences. The four-year-old curriculum is literature-based and thematic in nature. The curriculum encourages curiosity, develops a love of learning, fosters positive self-identity and sense of emotional well-being, develops social skills, and encourages children to think, reason, question, and experiment.

BRIDGE

Children must be 5 years old by September 1.
Classes M-F


The curriculum in the Bridge Class is literature-based. Phonemic awareness is taught and practiced in the meaningful context of Big Books, picture books, poetry, stories dictated by students, and high-interest books with few words. Centers are primarily open-ended and encourage creativity, problem-solving, and social skills. These centers on a typical day include home living, art, manipulatives, building materials, reading, listening, writing, math, and a sensory table. Our goal is to provide opportunities for children to experience every concept in a multi-sensory way. Every effort is made to accommodate the learning styles of each child. The interests expressed by the children and their parents often inspire topics of study.

KINDERGARTEN

Classes M-F

The hands-on Kindergarten curriculum addresses the unique differences in ability and development of each student. Individualized, phonetics-based reading programs guide students in comprehension of reading material and in development of critical thinking skills, including application to valuable principles in their lives. This solid foundation of mathematical concepts and problem-solving skills, enhanced with a biblical world-view, intentionally and naturally results in lifelong application. Students are equipped to explore science from a biblical worldview while developing practical use of the scientific method and application of critical thinking skills. Experienced teachers craft instruction that is challenging, yet appropriate for every student, while encouraging them to develop critical and creative thinking skills.
