We offer a theme-based curriculum with flexibility for the teachers to draw on the children’s interests.
For instance, should a class have an interest in a subject matter, teachers are encouraged to follow through on the theme and offer more activities. Our themes include senses, the farm, seasons, holidays, circus, bugs, ponds, oceans, and more.
Our curriculum is designed to aid in the development of the whole child, assisting in the physical and mental needs that are unique to these ages. We follow the state of South Carolina Early Learning Standards.
Our daily activities include language acquisition, gross and fine motor skills, emotional and social development, Bible stories, math concepts, science, art, and music. Within our language arts class, we are using the Zoo Phonics Curriculum as well as the Handwriting Without Tears Program. This is a developmentally based, flexible, easy, effective, and engaging program designed to allow children to develop good handwriting skills.
In addition to our daily activities, our preschoolers attend Chapel in the sanctuary with Pastor Sam each week for a Bible lesson, prayer, and music.
Children will also participate in a weekly session of Playball. Playball offers programs lasting one year each. These are age-specific according to the cognitive, emotional / social and motor development milestones of each age group. In each program your child’s developmental, emotional and physical needs are met. Each program has as one of its primary objectives to teach sport and movement, and to teach it properly.
