Our curriculum fosters school readiness by stimulating brain development for language learning, writing, reading, math, sensory, and science. We accomplished this by integrating activities in all development domains areas daily. Our focus is in concept learning and readiness that is age appropriate. An appreciation for all people is integrated into our learning opportunities. The curriculum emphasizes developmentally appropriate play experiences. The teacher takes into consideration family home values, beliefs and children skills. Each child is created by God to be unique and special.
Self-esteem and esteem for others are affirmed by nurturing teachers who understand how young children learn and guide them accordingly. Children and parents are most secure when Christian moral and spiritual values are reinforced in the classroom settings. Children learn to their maximum potential when age appropriate materials and resources are used in guiding their physical, intellectual, social, emotional, and moral/spiritual development.
