The two-year-old class focuses on learning how to sit through circle time (calendar, weather, etc.), how to function in a group and how to follow directions.

The children also learn Bible Stories that teach them about God’s love for them. The class includes free-play, craft time, playground and big room time as well.

Mondays-Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. until noon
Lunch/Enrichment on Tuesday until 1:00 p.m.
We offer a rigorous class for our four-year-olds, designed to prepare them for Kindergarten. We want our students entering kindergarten confident and capable. We achieve this through mornings full of learning that just happen to be fun! The backbone of our curriculum is Zoo-Phonics. We integrate excellent literature as well as science, social studies and math and extend the literature with crafts, games and songs to bring the stories to life. As part of the program we teach proper letter formation for which kindergarten teachers are grateful. We also offer many pre-reading opportunities such as learning bookhandling and reading skills with paper copies of easy readers.
There is also plenty of time for the important work of childhood – play. Both unstructured (free play) and guided play time (small group activities and dramatic play centers) are offered each day. The children get daily playground time as well.
Throughout all of these activities, the children learn about God’s creation and His love for them. The children have a bible memory verse and hymn to learn each month in addition to attending weekly chapel services.
B.A.M! (Bible, Arts, Music)
Fridays from 9:00 a.m. until noon, Available only to 3- and 4-year-olds
Separate from our regular age-level classes, B.A.M! (Bible, Arts and Music) is offered to our 3- and 4-yearolds as a once a week activity option. It will include Bible stories, arts exploration, crafts, music and freeplay. The goal of this time will be to reinforce child-appropriate skills learned in the classroom and provide a time of multi-age level play.
