Full time infant program:
In the Infant Room, we do not have a set routine; we follow your baby’s individual schedule for eating and sleeping. Throughout the day, in the Infant Room we have fun! We play together, sing, read stories, listen to fun music, teach basic sign language, make simple hand print crafts and enjoy buggy walks, when weather permits. We offer a large wide variety of small and large toys and baby equipment to encourage your child’s fine and gross motor skills. We meet the needs of each baby, and provide individual attention and above all being held, loved, and cuddled by all staff members. Because we respect the individual of each baby, the routine in the Infant Room is subject to change at any given time.
What a wonderful beginning to your child's preschool experience! Your child is developing quickly and thematic based curriculum gives your energetic and curious child the opportunity to explore this wonderful world God has created for them. Each day includes language development, simple math concepts, art, music and stories. Self help skills are taught as the children learn how to become more independent in cleaning-up and as we partner with you in potty training.
Ages 0-4 utilize the WEE Learn Curriculum
WEE Learn Curriculum is framed by the theory and philosophy of life. Led by faith and grounded in evidence based practices, programs using the WEE learn philosophy and curriculum work to support children and families. Children's individual differences and learning styles are considered as children learn through play and interactions with supportive early childhood teachers to maximize each child's learning potential.
For the 2018-2019 School year we will be switching our curriculum to Funnydaffer.
The Funnydaffer curriculum provides daily lessons that are developmentally appropriate for a variety of age groups. Each day includes five teacher-directed lesson plans, and five center-based lesson plans. This curriculum meets all the standard based lessons.

Learning for Life Character Development Curriculum
Learning for Life is a character education program designed to support schools and community- based organizations in their efforts to prepare youth to successfully handle the complexities of our contemporary society.
Our curriculum prepares students to enhance their self-confidence, motivation, and self-esteem. The program uses age-appropriate, specific lesson plans to give youth skills and information that will help them make positive decisions for themselves, their families and their futures.
Learning for Life makes academic learning fun and relevant to real-life situations in age appropriate and grade specific material. As a result, the positive character traits and skills learned by participation in Learning for Life not only make students more confident and capable, but also give them an invaluable understanding of how things work in the real world. Schools will see higher attendance rates and fewer disciplinary actions.
A huge emphasis is placed on your child's spiritual knowledge and growth. A weekly chapel for ages 3 and up is held in the sanctuary. Children learn how to worship through signing, bible stories and prayer.
