Our aged-based program curriculum are planned by certified Early Childhood Development professionals considering the child's mental, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual development.
Our lessons are prepared based on the WEE LEARN curriculum, which is published by LifeWay. WEE LEARN is a hands-on, Bible-based guide separated into 24 thematic units utilizing learning centers such as books, art, blocks, nature, dramatic play, and manipulative. Bible stories are included in daily lessons to enhance the unit themes being taught.
Our toddler program provides a safe and secure atmosphere, and promotes small group interaction between children learning to play and share with others. Basic learning such as colors, animal sounds, textures, and symbols are introduced. Toddlers are exploring, learning, and developing new relationships. The children learn through exercise, music, outdoor play, simple toys, and games.
2 Year Olds
When they turn two, children become more organized and express themselves in a variety of ways. They begin to learn about large and small groups. Simple step instructions can be followed. They have units of study that include such things as season changes, self and family, animals, helpers, and growing.
3 Year Olds
At this stage, children become more independent and confident. They learn cooperation skills and advance to longer group times. Units include numbers, letters, transportation, comparison, healthy foods, and community helpers. They work on following directions and developing positive self-expression. At three, children can respond to more complex instructions and anticipate structured daily activities.
4 Year Olds
As they prepare for Kindergarten, children learn pre-reading skills and letter recognition by sight and sound. Science units teach them about wind, magnets, water, and nature. Math and writing centers are added to the classroom curriculum. They learn greater responsibility with classroom job assignments and taking care of personal belongings. A special focused is placed on the development of character traits such as honesty, obedience, perseverance, and friendship, which are taught with Biblical truths and stories.
