Program and Curriculum

We utilize the HighScope Curriculum - an active approach to learning.  

Our curriculum includes:

  • Christian knowledge
  • Language, literacy and communication – All children will be immersed in a literature rich environment to develop an appreciation for literature and further their awareness of the connection between spoken and written language.
  • Oral language
  • Literature and reading – Phonological awareness literacy screening for rising Kindergarteners
  • Writing – Four-year olds are beginning to make the connection between print and thought. They engage in numerous pre-writing efforts.
  • Mathematics – Children need to experience mathematics with problem solving. Problem solving is not limited to mathematics, but integrated into all areas of the curricula.
  • Number and number sense
  • Patterns and relationships
  • Creative development and visual arts – Teachers give children daily opportunities for creative expressions and aesthetic appreciation. Children explore various art materials to use in creative expression and representation.
  • Science – The content of the science curriculum is often based on the children's spontaneous discoveries and interests. Teachers facilitate and guide learning experiences, providing vocabulary and concrete, hands-on opportunities for investigation.
  • Life processes – Children investigate the basic needs and process of plants.
  • Science and Technologies
  • Social Studies
  • Health – Personal safety is always emphasized.
  • Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical education
