PRESCHOOL

Philosophy: “For theirs is the kingdom of Heaven” Matthew 19:34
This is the foundation of our preschool Ministry. Jesus said,” Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Objectives:

  • To provide a Christ-centered environment and a child-centered curriculum for our children.
  • To provide activities that are developmentally appropriate to each child’s age and talents.
  • To provide a variety of activities to stimulate multiple learning styles and talents.
  • To provide an academic balance between the child’s spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs.
  • To teach the basic foundations of our Christian faith.
  • To teach each child that they are special just as God made them.
  • To keep an open line of communication between staff and family.
  • To love and nurture each child.
  • To develop each child’s self-confidence
  • To reach each child at their particular stage of development and help them be the best they can be.

 

Curriculum:

Mother’s Day Out (10 MONTHS-2 YEARS):

The Mom’s Day Out ministry is designed to provide a safe, loving place for children to be while moms get a break. The caretakers will pray for, sing to, read to, play with, and take care of each child’s physical needs while they are in the program. They will also monitor play between the children and help foster healthy play between them.

Preschool:

The basic curriculum will be an integration of the following: Christianity, language development, social skills, gross and fine motor skill development, music and movement, arts/crafts, science, social studies and basic math skills.

Two Year Olds:

  • The primary focus of the two year olds is socialization.
  • They will learn to be comfortable in a school setting, follow directions from an adult other than the parent(s), and play appropriately with other children.
  • They will learn how to operate different art mediums (crayons, markers, paint, scissors, glue, etc.) in an appropriate manner.
  • Lear shapes and colors

Three Year Olds:

  • The three-year-old program will move closer to preparing the children for school. Academic knowledge will be introduced in an age-appropriate, hands on manner.
  • Exposure to quality children’s literature will be a primary concern in the classroom. Classroom activities and learning centers will help further comprehension skills requires for later success in school.
  • The curriculum will also integrate fine and gross motor skills to begin to foster early writing skills.
  • The children will be taught letter and number recognition, as well as pre-writing and math skills.

Four Year Olds/Pre-Kindergarten:

  • The primary focus of the four-year-old program is to ready the children for Kindergarten in an age-appropriate and fun manner. Such skills as name writing and letter and number recognition will be included. Activities introduced will foster literacy and math skills.
