Children develop and acquire skills through a predictable sequence of stages. We provide a learning environment that allows each student to build upon existing skills. Children accommodate new information by interacting with concrete materials and experiencing the environment through their senses. This strong foundation leads to the development of abstract thinking. Curiosity is an important component of learning. Children learn best when they are given the opportunity to ask questions and find different solutions to a problem. Our students are encouraged to hypothesize, experiment, and develop out-of-the-box thinking. Repetition and imitation are necessary for learning. Repeating actions, words, and routines, increases skill and understanding.
We provide an atmosphere where a child feels loved and accepted as a special person created by God. Parents and teachers working together can support each other in providing positive learning experiences for children. When this is accomplished, we both can look forward to the promise of Proverbs 22:6 (NIV): “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not return from it.” Children experience God’s love and build a sense of self-worth through love and acceptance. Each child is recognized as a unique and special person with the potential to grow and learn.
