We believe the most important thing every child should learn is to love God and one another.  This belief guides us as we plan activities that allow children to love God in prayer and worship.  Children love one another by sharing, taking turns and playing together.  

Academically, the curriculum will focus on instilling a desire for life long learning.  It will be part social, part play and part books/paper & pencil.  Age appropriate experiential activity will be provided to enhance all learning.  Children will develop gross and fine motor skills through physical activity interacting with various toys, exploring outdoor and gym activities, working with crayons, paints, clay, glue, scissors, and various other activities.  Our children will come to recognize themselves as an important part of our faith community through prayer, worship, Scripture & instruction. 

Attention will be given to the child’s social development through interaction with adults and children.  Group and individual activity will be provided to help children further develop verbal skills as well as appreciation of those around them.

Below are listed general curriculum goals and activities.  Each one will be implemented based on the developmental level of the children in each program.
