Academic, Physical, Spiritual, and Social Enrichment
Our program provides three twenty minute specials each week for 3 and 4 year olds and two specials for our 2 year olds. Music time introduces 2, 3 & 4 year olds to basic music concepts, musical instruments, and creative movement. Physical education offers our 2, 3 & 4 year olds the opportunity to develop their large motor skills and participate in group games. Computer time is for our 3 & 4 year old classes in our preschool computer lab. Fun computer games are used to teach basic computer and small motor skills. Library time gives our children a chance to learn many pre-reading skills and enjoy a variety of books.
Our children are introduced to the lessons of the Bible through Bible stories and related activities each week in the classroom. In addition, 3 & 4 year olds visit our church’s sanctuary once each month for chapel time. It is here that we participate in and learn about worship through songs and stories. These nondenominational, Bible-based lessons are led by the pastors of our church. Also, at the beginning of each day and before the daily snack, children learn to pray together with their teacher, learning thankfulness to God and basic prayer habits.
The children enjoy a healthy snack each day, exciting art projects, theme days, water play days, and field trips to nearby locations. Our children also learn to give back to their community through food and toy drives during the holidays and the St. Jude Trike-a-thon. Friendships blossom and social skills grow through organized and free play, sharing, and taking turns.
