The All God's Children curriculum provides learning full of play and adventure, investigation and discovery. Each classroom is set up to provide a variety of experiences for the development of each child. Our learning activities include:
- Language arts
- Faith development
- Sensory experience
- Practical life
- Science and nature
- Cognitive and creative experiences
- Gross and fine motor activities
Our teachers promote discovery through planned activities, as well as in free play, encouraging creative thinking and problem solving skills. Self-esteem is fostered in every activity through positive nonjudgmental communication. Christian education and values are integrated into daily living and curriculum. Toddlers and preschoolers are invited to learn about Jesus and Bible stories in group time and during weekly Children's Church.
Our smallest children are cared for with love and joy, in a group of no more than eight infants with three teacher/caregivers.
Our infant program has the following goals:
- To provide a secure Christian environment in a loving, caring atmosphere, where infants can grow, play and learn
- To promote communication skills through sign language and verbal interactions with caregivers
- To discover new environments and tools through manipulation and exploration
- To coordinate and develop body movements and senses while playing and learning
Teddy Bears and Bumblebees (younger and older toddlers)
We treasure our toddlers for their exuberance and their love of learning new things. Toddlers are split into two groups of up to eight children, with at least two teachers in each group.
- To provide a secure Christian environment in a loving, caring atmosphere, where toddlers can grow, play and learn
- To promote communication skills through sign language, books and stories, and verbal interactions with caregivers
- To discover new understandings of their world through manipulation and exploration
- To provide the support and guidance needed for each child as they learn and develop at their own pace
- To offer well rounded learning activities to facilitate physical, intellectual, emotional and social development
Lions and Zoo Crew (three, four, and five year olds)
Our Lions and Zoo Crew classes cover the span between our three year olds, four year olds, some five year olds who miss the Kindergarten age cut-off, and a few Kindergarteners. We can accommodate children of Kindergarten age for the morning and after school time, surrounding an afternoon Kindergarten class. We can also accommodate Kindergarteners who have an alternate day Kindergarten schedule. Our Lions and Zoo Crew classes may have as many as 24 children, taught by four staff members.
- Along with a varied preschool curriculum, we focus on literacy skills. Children are well prepared for Kindergarten with a solid base in early reading skills.
- We promote communication skills through meaningful opportunities with responsive caregivers.
- The children learn through their play, interacting with each other in a positive way, learning to work together as a team and by problem solving. Teachers guide, support and reinforce positive behavior.
- Children learn about the wonders of God's world, and the blessings of our families.
- Our teachers establish a safe, yet challenging environment, allowing children to learn and discover at their own pace.
- We are committed to meeting the needs of each child spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically and intellectually.
