Curriculum

Each day we enjoy learning about a special topic having to do with the seasons, holidays, the world around us, or the letter of the week. As we study our topic, we incorporate reading readiness, math, Bible, play and movement, social studies, science, art, and music. We want your child to have a love of learning and a love for school, so we try to make learning interesting and fun. We also want your child to have the skills necessary for a smooth transition into kindergarten.
