Our beginners, ages 15 months to 2 years, must be walking independently and drinking from a sipper cup. We understand that this may be the first time a child has been away from a parent and therefore we strive to provide a very loving and secure” home away from home” for the child. Classroom activities include music, art, outdoor play or gym time, free play, story time, and snack time. Learning to sit for snacks and circle time, manners (saying “please” and “thank you”), sharing , and being kind to others are the primary goals of our Beginners class. Children are exposed to the concepts of colors, animals, shapes, and holidays. Class is limited to 8 children with 2 teachers.
Children participate in circle time where Bible lessons and other concepts are shared. The Twos enjoy art activities, music, outside play or gym time, snack time, and independent play within the classroom. Children learn to walk in a line and follow simple directions. Children are exposed to numbers and the concepts of colors, shapes, animals and holidays are reinforced. At this age children are learning through play. They are learning critical life lessons such as getting along with others and sharing. Class is limited to 12 children with 2 teachers.
In addition to the previously mentioned activities, our Three Year Olds participate in calendar activities, daily devotions and pledges, and the alphabet as well as participating in our weekly music enrichment class. Teachers use a variety of learning activities to help teach the children the Bible lessons and academic concepts. Class size is limited to 14 children with 2 teachers.
The primary goal of our Four Year Old program is to prepare the child for kindergarten.
