Our programs for 1 and 2 year olds focus on acquiring strong listening and language skills. Age-appropriate enrichment is offered through stories, songs, and dance where individual participation is encouraged. Free and creative play aids children in exploring the world around them. Number, phonics and letter recognition are also introduced in the 1 and 2 year old program utilizing the A Beka curriculum. The student/teacher ratio is 5 to 1 for the one year olds and 6 to 1 for the two year olds.
Structured Preschool classes for 3 and 4 year olds provide pre-Kindergarten reading readiness skills utilizing the A Beka curriculum. Our primary focus for these age groups is to promote language, social, listening, and fine and gross motor skills through a variety of age-appropriate activities. Music, art, Bible, theme studies, and free play are also incorporated into the pre-Kindergarten program. Special event programs are provided on-site throughout the year. In addition to academic instruction, children enrolled in the 3 and 4 year old programs attend chapel once a week. Students enjoy lunch in their classroom, as well as outdoor play and center play. The student/teacher ratio is 8 to 1 for the three year olds and 10 to 1 for the four olds.
Our well-established Early Childhood program has been producing Kindergarten-ready children for over 50 years.
