What sets us apart from other Early Childhood Programs?
Our program is a mission outreach of our congregation. Every school day, we spend time talking about who Jesus is and what He has done for us. We use Jesus as an example for how to treat others. We share different Bible stories each week and some of our classroom themes are about Bible stories. We teach our students different prayers before snack and our Pastor leads a weekly chapel service on Wednesday mornings for our children.
Our program also prepares children for Kindergarten. This includes:
- Letter Recognition
- Letter Writing
- Letter Sounds
- How to interact in a large group
- Taking turns
- How to problem solve
- How to meet new friends
We assess each child early in the school year to help us know how to challenge them individually.
Our large classrooms have many windows and two skylights that bring in plenty of natural light. They also are equipped with a reading loft and a playhouse underneath. We have a large activity room outside our classrooms for playing games and using large motor skills. Our new playground structure is a great place to use some of the excess energy that 3 and 4 year olds have. Our church owns 29 acres of land around our school. This allows us to have a nature trail and a wooded area with lots of wildlife to see. During winter, when we have snow, we can go sledding on a hill in our fenced in play area.
Our 2 teachers bring their own strengths to the program. Mrs. Stoltenberg loves books, writing and art. She adds many creative touches to art projects and her students are always creating something new.
Mr. Boris enjoys his role as a positive male role model. He loves science. Science is a lot like play. We try something and see what happens and then we can try it differently to see if the results change. We do many experiments during the year. Some examples are:
- Launching model rockets
- Dissecting fish
- Egg Drop (student build boxes to protect eggs from breaking when dropped from ladder)
- Digging up fossils
- Mixing concrete
- Playing with ice
Our school is unique and growing. Please make an appointment so we can show you our facility and how our program can impact your child’s life.
