Preschooler 5 & 4
This is our PreK readiness classroom. Our focus in this classroom is preparing your child for Kindergarten. However, we focus our learning through play and interaction with our friends & adult teachers. This is where the hands and feet of Christ begins, “to go out into the world” and share the love of Christ with love, grace, and mercy for others. Learning should be fun!
24 Months – 3 Years
Toddler 2 classes will experience huge thinking, learning, social, and emotional changes that will help them to explore their new world, and make sense of it. The focus of our toddler 2’s & 3’s is reading, singing, pretend play, follow the leader, exploring, learning name & age, taking turns, encouraging positive behavior, coloring, sorting colors, shapes, and objects, learning our different emotions, & Potty training.
12 – 24 Months
During the second year, toddlers are moving around more, and are aware of themselves and surroundings. Their desire to explore new objects and people also is increasing. The focus of our Toddler 1 Class will surround story time reading, singing, nursery rhymes, naming objects, sorting shapes, matching games, simple puzzles, exploring, and begin feeding themselves.
0 – 12 Months
Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move. In the first year, babies learn to focus their vision, reach out, explore, and learn about the things that are around them.The way a parent or caregiver cuddle, hold, and play with a baby will set the basis for how they will interact with them and others.
6 Week – 30 Month:
This is where learning begins. The program provides a safe and nurturing environment while responding to each child’s growing interest and needs. Motor coordination is developed through games, puzzles, and blocks. Language development is encouraged through songs, play, and stories. The Toddler program focuses on the whole child and teaches your toddler about friendship, understanding his or her emotions, develop physical skills, and creative thinking and problem-solving.

Children learn by doing. They learn through play, experimentation, exploration, and testing. Learning should be a joyful, natural experience. We have chosen a curriculum based on the developmental needs of the children in each the room and to foster individual growth through opportunities for exploration. 90% of brain growth occurs from zero to 5 years old. Each class’s lesson plans and your child’s class flexible schedule are posted on the parent’s board in your child’s room. We incorporate current trends in Early Childhood and School Age Education and then structure this curriculum to meet the needs of the majority of the children in the group. Our curriculum, although it will vary depending on age, is guided by the following underlying principals of active learning:
- Children learn through dynamic investigation
- Children instigate their own learning
- Learning comes from open-ended experiences
- Adults are facilitators of children’s learning
