Child Development


We design activities that follow state standards and promote a love of learning. In that environment, we encourage creativity, curiosity, emerging literacy, language, investigation and math skills.  An ongoing assessment of the child is used to determine their needs and abilities and then work to move them forward.


We use Bible stories, dramatic play, prayer, songs and the Christian example of our teachers to increase a child’s understanding of God and His love.


Our physical environment is safe and encourages children to explore and take risks in both fine and gross motor areas.


We value diversity among our learners.  We model behavior and support children in sharing, taking turns and working with others.


We demonstrate respect for each child’s uniqueness by teaching with a balance of structure and free choice for children and include opportunities for both active and quiet times.  We create an environment where students are safe to express their feelings.
