Curriculum:

We implement a Faith-based, theme oriented curriculum.  Most importantly, Christian values are consistently modeled and encouraged through thoughtful interactions and positive reinforcement.  Each day, our children experience a balanced acquisition of skills and knowledge along with the joys and delights of a playful childhood.  Emergent literacy and writing experiences are provided within well-planned activities and implemented play opportunities to meet the individual needs of each child.  These activities will develop skills and knowledge in all learning domains through topics that young children find interesting.  These domains include:  language development, emergent literacy, cognitive development, social and emotional development, approaches to learning, and physical and health development.

We will assist the children in cultivating their approaches to learning, including:

• developing an eagerness to learn new things

• showing curiosity about the world in which we live
• increasing persistence in performing tasks

These skills are necessary in order for children to become resilient and to develop confidence in their abilities.
