Growing and Learning

Mission Statement

It is our deepest prayer that through the time spent in our program your child will:

  • Grow to enjoy learning
  • Develop a strong sense of self worth
  • Become comfortable in a group setting
  • Increase their attention span
  • Know that God loves them

Curriculum

The preschool will be operated on a “child directed” learning concept. This is a standard set by NAEYC (National Association of Education of Young Children). The classroom is set up with enrichments such as: music, science, reading, computer, blocks, art and housekeeping. Through each of these areas we will begin to foster number and letter concepts, social emotional skills, and thought process. A bible lesson will be emphasized each day using simple bible stories from a non-denominational approach.
