About Us
 
Purpose and Goals
Our purpose is to provide your child with a Christian environment where he or she can grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. Our goal is to support the development of each child to his or her greatest potential. We believe this happens in a nurturing environment which fosters mutual respect and appreciates the unique qualities of each individual.

Our Philosophy and Curriculum
We adhere to developmentally appropriate practices – children learn while they play. Our curriculum focuses on the process of learning rather than the finished product. Teachers act as facilitators for learning by providing a carefully planned environment that is appropriately challenging for each age-level. With infants and toddlers, emphasis is placed on positive interaction with the teacher and exposure to educational toys. We believe that a nurturing environment where the child’s needs are met promptly by caring teachers is vital to the development of the young child who is learning to trust. It is important to us that your child feels happy and secure while they are in our care. In the Two Year Old classrooms, we build on developmentally appropriate skills while maintaining a nurturing environment that helps your child to feel happy and secure. The child will stay engaged through fun activities that foster a love for exploring and learning. Through the use of centers, manipulatives, social interaction with their peers, and one-on-one teacher interaction, your child will grow in the areas of cognitive development, language, and motor skills. The Preschool classrooms will use the Letter People® curriculum. The Letter People curriculum is correlated to the Texas Pre-K standards. The Letter People® will develop the child’s print awareness, oral language and listening skills, letter identification and sound/symbol association, vocabulary development, writing and spelling, math, science, personal and social development, and engaging home-to-school activities.
 
Christian Education
In our chapel time each week, your child will be taught creative and age-appropriate Bible lessons. This means that the lessons are both developmentally and spiritually appropriate for your child, as well as intended to be fun and engaging. In the Infant and Toddler classrooms, Jesus’ love for your child is demonstrated by providing a safe and loving environment in which the child can sing and play. In the Two, Three, and Four Year-Old classrooms, your child will begin learning Bible stories, as well as the concepts of friendship, helping others, and forgiveness.
