We believe the Holy Bible is God�s inherent Word.
We believe that Christ died and rose again for the salvation of children and adults.
We believe God loves, cares for, and is concerned for children.
We believe that every child is a promise with potential.
We believe that a Christian school should cooperate with the parents to provide a quality Christian education."

A Typical Day

"Daily Program:
A carefully supervised and balanced program is offered to assist the child in his/her learning process. This includes varied activities of play, reading readiness, music, stories, art, science and health. All of these provide an educational experience of lasting value in the physical, mental and emotional development of each child. We will be sharing with the children about creation and the creator. Bible stories and songs will be told daily with a positive emphasis placed upon the fact that Jesus loves us.

Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Small group sessions

Handling Separation: From the Director

When a child enrolls in FCCA he/she may have some difficulty separating from their parent. Teachers will comfort them and encourage them to become a part of the classroom activity, or maybe just observe the classroom until the child feels comfortable to engage in the classroom.
