We educate the whole child, and recognize these years are some of the most formative in a child's life. The curriculum offers each student a broad learning experience that forms a foundation for ongoing learning.
The following is a sampling of the curriculum.
Children learn to appreciate the orderliness of God's world through the study of mathematics (problem solving, manipulation, sorting, counting and grouping).
Simple truths give meaning to the early development of children and teach Christian character. The importance of God caring for us, God as our Heavenly Father and Creator, and God's love for us, are cornerstones of the course of study. Bible memory, prayer, and worship help develop an understanding of our relationship with God.
Reading, writing, listening, speaking, and thinking skills are foundations for all learning. Included are activities for developing oral language and listening skills, games and ideas for reading readiness, and writing skills.
Science is best when it is experienced and explored. Children observe nature and appreciate God's creation as they study science. Basic principles of observation, recording, predicting, experimenting, and concluding are practiced.
Children are curious about their communities. Through a Christian worldview, children explore and discover communities and the world at large. Children have a variety of experiences to understand their value as God's children and realize how the importance of their actions and decisions impact their peers.
Introducing an appreciation for a variety of music enriches children. Students develop a basic understanding of musical elements and engage in creative expression through the incorporation of mood, rhythm, and melody. Opportunities are present for active involvement in activities that teach principles of God's truth and praise in worship.
Children learn to be creative. While creating, attention is given to fine motor skills, following directions and care of materials. Art is coordinated with other subject areas.
