We offer a play based approach to learning in a Christian environment.  Classroom centers allow for structured and non-structured play encouraging each child to grow and develop at their own speed.  Children are introduced to colors, shapes, numbers and letters through a wide variety of art activities.   Throughout the morning, children enjoy activities, which include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), art, writing and dramatic play.  Special weekly activities include Music, Star of the week, Show & tell, Spanish, Chapel,  and Pastor Lynne visiting the classroom.

  • Morning snack is provided.
