Little Country Christian School incorporates a teaching philosophy that recognizes Christian principles and a child,s desire to learn while having fun. We believe that building a proper relationship with God is an essential part of a well rounded education. With this in mind, we emphasize the moral, spiritual and physical development of each child. Educational goals include patriotism, respect for authority, a love for learning and a desire to know God. We use a reading system developed by Abeka Book Publications. Children are taught new material on each age level, progressing steadily at their own pace from year to year.
Curriculum at LCCS:
At LCCS, we combine the use of a complete phonics reading system developed by Abeka Book Publications and our own reading readiness program.
We follow a teaching philosophy that recognizes Christian principles and a childï¿½??s desire to learn while having fun.
In addition to the specific learning objectives listed by age in this handbook, the children will participate in the following activities.
*Bible Stories and activities ï¿½?? Children will learn the Bible through story time, music, Bible videos, and scripture memory.
*Musical activities ï¿½?? Children love our special music time. Singing, dancing, and playing rhythm instruments are just a few of the ways the children can express themselves through music. The children will also perform in two musical programs a year.
*Science Activities ï¿½?? Children are naturally curious about the world around them. We try to create an atmosphere that encourages wondering, observing, exploring and discovery.
*Creative Arts ï¿½?? Children are given the opportunity to experiment, discover, imagine and express their original ideas in a free and open environment where the individual and her/his personal contributions are highly cherished.
*Play Time ï¿½?? Structured and unstructured play time encourages social play, imagination and large and small muscle development.
Our curriculum ensures that students will be taught new material at each age level and that there will be sufficient reviews of former material each year. Students progress at their own pace with loving encouragement from teaching staff.
