We believe in learning based play. Within the children's play, we incorporate science, mathematical concelts, pre-writing activities, beginning literacy skills, self-help skills, art and social studies. The environment is arranged to allow children the opportunity to safely explore and freely choose their own activities. Lesson plans are based on the children's interest and include large group and individual goals. We keep our classroom's size smaller which helps in building relationships with each family. Our program successfully partners with parents to nurture and facilitate a relationship with each individual child that promotes creativity, critical thinking and cooperation. Based on relational spirituality, children experience prayer, stillness and wonder in their day-to-day activities as well as during specially designed sacred times. Each day, children bring a snack to eat together in class.
This state-licensed program offers keypad safety and a clean and bright environment in a convenient downtown setting. All classrooms are equipped with child-sized sinks and child-sized toilets to support and encourage self-care and toilet learning.
Free Play/Center Time
Culture of Wellness in Preschools
The Director of Children's Ministries meets with the preschool children monthly. Each lesson surrounds the children with experiences that reflect God's love for them, which includes stillness, prayer and wonder. Each classroom teacher offers a sacred circle throughout the week to remind the children that they are loved and that they are a blessing.
