Programs based on your child's social and developmental needs
Welcome to our Christian childcare center and preschool. Children are exposed
to a theme-based curriculum through a wide variety of ideas, art mediums,
challenging and educational toys, enriching books, developmental math and
language activities, and field trips. We have weekly Chapel time which involves
music, prayer and basic Bible stories. Our curriculum is planned to provide each
child with as many opportunities as possible to explore their world, interact
with others, learn to care about others, and gain self confidence as they
develop new skills.
The center also provides well-balanced meals and snacks for children
attending our various programs. Meal times are a great social event, and the
children work on table manners, help with set up and clean up, and learn some
math and science concepts in the process.
Infants (6 weeks to 12 months)
We respond promptly to babies' needs, whether it is for food, dry diapers,
attention or hugs. We believe infant feeding times are times of nurturing and
social interaction. We will never prop a bottle with an infant or put a child to
sleep with a bottle. Babies nap and feed according to their individual
schedules. Developmentally appropriate toys are out throughout the day.
One-Year-Old and Two-Year-Olds
Our goal is to provide a variety of developmentally appropriate hands-on
activities for children to explore and manipulate. We will have activities to
help develop language, gross and fine motor skills. Our interactions will foster
positive self-concepts, socials skills and reasoning skills. As children are
ready to sit and participate in circle times, these opportunities will be
available. In addition to regular meals and snacks, activities throughout the
day include free play, texture table, play dough, concept games, art, stories,
music, outside play, quiet time, and nap time.
Three-Year-Olds: Classroom and Childcare
The preschool classroom includes children enrolled part-time a few days a
week, and those enrolled for preschool plus childcare. In both, age-appropriate
activities are designed to help develop language, gross and fine motor skills.
In addition to family-style meals and snacks, activities include free play,
stories, music, creative art, easel, texture table, learning centers, directed
art, outdoor play, and nap/rest time. Throughout our time together, we seek to
foster children's positive self-concepts, socials skills and reasoning skills,
as well as help them develop increasing coordination for their growing
Four- & Five-Year-Olds: Classroom and Childcare
Children at this age are getting ready for and experiencing kindergarten, and
our goal is to help them gain the social and reasoning skills to make this a
smooth transition. Activities include family style meals and snacks, as well as
free play, stories, concepts, plan of the day, music, flag salute, learning
centers, creative arts, calendar, math concepts, weather, directed art, outdoor
play, quiet time, and prayer time.
Before & After School Childcare for Children in Grades K-5
As with the other classrooms, children can arrive as early as 6:00 a.m. to
help accommodate parents' work schedules. Family style breakfasts are served
from 7:00 - 8:00 a.m.. After eating, children can select quiet games,
self-directed art, or other activities to participate in prior to boarding the
bus for school. After school, children arrive by bus at 3:45, and receive a
snack before engaging in indoor or outdoor free play and then homework time.
