Our Programs
Our Preprimary (Preschool) Program

Prechoolers participate in a variety of structured and unstructured activities throughout their full or half-day program.  Creativity, curiosity, and imagination are fostered as they participate in active, hands-on learning experiences.  Self-help skills and self-regulation are major goals for children at this level.

Examples of Preprimary Experiences
  • Bible Time: Children listen to and participate in Bible lessons.
  • Play: Children act out their own play themes, pretending and working cooperatively.
  • Creative Arts: Children create unique artwork and express themselves through music.
  • Physical Development: Children increase their hand-eye coordination and balance through planned group experiences.
  • Lauguage/Literacy: Children learn concepts of print, retell stories, and learn about letters in the context of stories and everyday experiences.
  • Social Development: Children learn to problem solve with others and form friendships with peers.
Our Toddler Program

Toddlers are busy, active learners engaging in group experiences designed for their developmental level and facilitated by their caregivers.  They begin to work and play cooperatively in groups.  Communication skills are developed through verbal and nonverbal conversations.
