Curriculum
The infant room is highly sought after because of the care our teachers take to stimulate every baby's development. Our infant room is stocked with equipment that encourages manipulation and focuses on strengthening the fine motor skills. Recognizing that children begin learning about the world around them from birth, we train our staff to pay attention, just as you do, to make sure each child is reaching his or her developmental milestones. While all of our rooms are bright and colorful, the infant room is especially vibrant. Our teachers watch closely for "forerunners", to see when each child exhibits readiness for the next stage of enrichment.

In addition to much finger and hand games, the infants' classroom program is enriched with singing and cuddling.

Our focus on sensory and cognitive stimulation and development continues in our toddler classrooms. In addition to our center play and monthly themed activities, sign language instruction is continued in our toddler room. We also introduce Spanish to the 12-24 month olds. Spanish is taught based on a literacy-rich program of language and cultural instruction enhanced by music and movement.

We know that at 2 years old children reach a linguistic milestone, learning more words their second year than at any other one year of their lives. Our instructors are fueled by this notion, and that is one of the reasons that we begin introducing components of the Abeka Curriculum to children at this age. We know that the Abeka curriculum has proven itself to be a strong instrument in literacy for young children. So, we gently introduce letters and sounds at this stage, taking care to design literacy lessons that reinforce our hands-on approach to developing their fine and gross motor skills.

Spanish and sign language instruction continues for the 2s. And boy do they soak it in quickly.

At three years, science and discovery are of top importance to young children. We promote this natural interest in the world around them with our learning center for science and discovery. At this classroom center, children explore the wonders of the earth such as gravity and magnetism. We stock this center full of mini animals, insect replicas and magnifying glasses that make it easier for children to observe their tiny parts. To continue to foster their understanding of the world we embark on a year long discovery of our solar system, including the planets and the heavens above them. It is also at this center that the building blocks of scientific discovery are laid as our children are exposed to the scientific method of prediction (hypothesis), observation, experimentation and, subsequently, discovery.

At four years old and above children begin to show readiness for longer periods of instruction. We take advantage of their readiness by offering small group learning times where we focus on phonics and counting skills. Abeka flash cards, songs and finger play examples are used here.

Another feature of this classroom is its longer periods of circle time. Circle Time is thematically based, lending itself to singing, finger plays, and conversation. It can serve as a time for us to observe each child's comprehension of previous lessons. Circle Time creates an atmosphere of social development, where we teach our children to speak in turns and not interrupt. Circle Time presents a valuable environment where patience, kindness and gentleness can be seamlessly reinforced.  We instruct our children using A Beka Book, which provides Christian schools with God-honoring curriculum that focuses on leading our students to Christ and training them in the Bible, Christian character, language, and traditional subject matters.  The A Beka Book approach keeps learning stimulating, interesting, and enjoyable.
