Then Jesus said,

“Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all, He is the greatest

Luke 9:48

Our School is a cooperative program providing children with a family-oriented first-school experience. Parents are invited to be scheduled in their child’s classroom to participate and help in the daily curriculum.
Our program fosters growth for each child in a supportive, loving learning environment.
Our goal is to strengthen each child’s self-esteem by communicating how exceptional they are to God and their family.
Our Program Includes the following:
  •   Certified, experienced teachers.
  •   Structured educational programs.
  •   Complete facilities, including a gymnasium and developmental playground.
  •   Warm and loving Christian environment
  •   Regular parent-teacher communication.
  •   Before/After School Childcare.
  •   Teacher-parent guided learning and parental involvement for child’s early school experience.
 All Classes will share our love for God with each child through Bible stories, prayer time, and Christian-based activities. Activities include thanking God for His many blessings, learning about the wonder of God’s creations, and emphasizing how God is always with us. We nourish and encourage the conversation of God and His role in our daily lives.
 Our Classes and Schedules
 Our 2’s is a popular program where younger children can enjoy a preschool experience. Children enjoy free play, circle time, arts and crafts, snack time, and a playground (weather permitting) with a weekly theme. In addition, this class is a beautiful way to learn about our school, teachers, and programs.
 2-year-old class:  Tue. & Thurs 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.                                                
The Young 3’s program is a beautiful introduction to preschool for both child and parent. The program emphasizes the social and emotional growth of the individual child while providing an introduction to the preschool environment. Free play experiences, art activities, circles, and story time are integral to the program. 
The class meets twice each week.
Young 3-year-old class:  Mon. & Thurs. or Tues.& Fri. 9:15 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.
The Older 3’s encourages academic, social, and emotional growth and the development of a positive sense of self. They are introduced to basic concepts and skills, including colors, shapes, numbers, letters, and fine motor development. These skills help prepare the child for other preschool experiences.
We offer two classes from which to choose, a two-day-a-week program or a four-day-a-week program.
 Older 3-year-old class:  Mon.& Thurs. or Tues.& Fri 9:15 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.
The four’s curriculum encourages the child’s abilities. There is a developmental sequence of skills bringing the child from a three’s program and preparing them for a pre-kindergarten 5’s or kindergarten experience. The goal of the four-year-old class is to provide direction, guidance, and enrichment as the child develops socially, emotionally, physically, and academically. This is achieved by offering opportunities for creating, playing, listening, sharing, and skill development while promoting a positive sense of self.The class meets three days each week or four days a week.

Opportunities for growth in language arts and reading readiness, number readiness, science and social studies, music, art, and motor development are given through various learning experiences. Continual support and encouragement are provided as the child gains further independence and develops socially and emotionally.We offer a Pre-Kindergarten class that meets four days each.
