Our Mission

To create a positive impact on the lives of young children and instill a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Through Christ-centered teachings, we prepare children for futures filled with success and joy.

Our Approach

We base our programs on the principles of “Developmentally Appropriate Practice,” often abbreviated as DAP. DAP is a way of teaching that focuses on how young children learn best. By adapting to the experience, interests and abilities of the individual children within our care, we create the opportunity for learning and discovering together.

Curriculum Overview – Lambs: 3 Year-Olds

All aspects of child development – social, emotional, physical and cognitive — are interrelated. For our littlest learners, our program is designed to promote the health and development of the whole child. Fun games with numbers, shapes, letters and nursery rhymes create an essential foundation of social skills and language development, and an appreciation for structure and routine.

*Children must be fully potty trained

Curriculum Overview – Lions: 4 & 5 Year-Olds

Children are always seeking to understand the world around them. Because they learn in a variety of ways, we offer a variety of teaching methods to ensure we reach every child. Through engaging and interactive experiences, children develop their motor skills and gain proficiency in reading readiness, responsibility, independence, following directions and listening.
