Curriculum

Our faith filled developmentally appropriate curriculum includes all aspects of learning; academic, social, spiritual and physical.  The low student teacher ratio allows for a child focused program, which nurtures individual needs and increases creativity through open-ended and theme based projects.  Our curriculum includes art, science, music, small and large motor skill development and manipulative materials to enhance pre-reading and pre-math skills.  We’ll read bundles of stories to further language development, have outside playtime and include fun, love and laughter.
