Preschool is the first step in your child’s educational life. Many of your child’s lasting impressions of education are formed in their preschool years. Our preschool strives to provide a learning environment which encourages growth and development.
Our philosophy is that children will begin to see God in their world and in others while having fun in a joyous Christian setting. A positive Christian attitude will allow for socialization skills and sharing techniques. The children will receive age appropriate reading readiness, math, science, social studies, and the Love of God.
Children learn best through play. This is the basis of our curriculum. In our three year old program the children are learning to play with others. There are twelve children in the class with a lead teacher and an associate teacher. This is a ratio of one teacher to six children. The four year old program follows our three year old program in a more structured way. The interests of the children are the basis of their learning experiences.
There are twelve children in a class. We continue the ratio of one lead teacher and one associate teacher to six children.
