Teachers plan engaging thematic units that change weekly. Each month has a Bible verse which the children memorize, and each class has a daily Bible Circle. This includes a theme related Bible lesson, memory verse, singing, and a time of prayer. We present Christmas and Easter from the Biblical point of view.
Our staff strives to make God the center of all learning experiences throughout the day. Before snack and lunch, the children pause to give thanks to God. When participating in Science or Nature activities, the discussions will include praising God for the wonderful things He created for our benefit and enjoyment. Godly standards for behavior are developed as the child learns to relate to others through kindness, caring, and sharing, using Jesus as our example.
“Even a child is known by his actions.” Proverbs 20:11
“I (Jesus) have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.” John 13:15.
We hold a “Morning Assembly” where students gather with the Director and staff and sing a song, say the Pledge of Allegiance, and share prayer requests. We also spend time memorizing the books of the Bible and learn about the Ten Commandments. It is an amazing time for the school to all get together and connect with one another.
Each day the teachers plan for and provide many varied activities to promote growth and development in each child. Our curriculum team plans monthly themes, letters, numbers, and Bible stories. Each class follows the same monthly schedule, enabling everyone to learn the same concepts at their age-appropriate levels. The curriculum includes:
Art/Crafts, Language/ Pre-Reading Activities, Cooking/Nutrition, Math/Numbers, Literature, Science/Nature, Large/Small Motor Skills, Social Studies, Perceptual Motor Skills, Bible Stories, Health/Safety, Block Building, etc.
During the course of each day we offer:
- Small group/large group activities
- Structured/non-structured play & activities
- Listening to and following directions
- Creativity in art, music, and dramatic play
- Nutritious snacks
- Working alone and working with others
- Tender loving care
