Curriculum & Classes

We believe in a well-balanced curriculum and classes which help develop the whole child …

CURRICULUM

We recognize that children have their own learning styles and it is with teacher guidance that we encourage children to progress at their own pace.  Our curriculum will develop the whole child by including physical, cognitive, language, social, emotional, creative and spiritual development.  We will begin with learning about the self, including self-image, senses, favorite things, growth, etc.  Our program will continue moving outward by next looking at families, the community, and natural environment.  Our program incorporates development philosophies and uses Riggio’s ideas to bring the preschool community together with the church community.

Throughout the year we will incorporate religious holidays into our program by working on long-term art projects that will be enjoyed by the entire community.  Our children will also participate in church celebrations with baking projects.  By participating in these activities and bringing the preschool community together with the larger church community we are teaching our children the importance of being part of a community, and the importance of working together as a team.
