Our Curriculum


Our students are taught that Jesus is their best friend who loves, cares, forgives and is with them. This is taught and experienced through prayer, worship, singing and learning God's Word.


Our program promotes language development, listening skills and oral expression; identifying and recognizing number, letters. shapes and colors. 


The children in our program learn to care for their personal needs, develop their large and fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination, by engaging in activities such as cutting, coloring, skipping, running and balancing. 


Our students engage in self-expression through art, music, rhythm, and imaginative play.


Our students will know that they are secure and loved by god, staff, and students. Growth in positive self-awareness and accepting responsibility for their behavior is encouraged. 


Our program works to help children strengthen their relationship with God and with others. it encourages cooperative play, sharing, showing concern for others, and resolving disagreements in positive ways.
