We believe that through play and guided learning, children develop all the skills they need for school. Childhood is a time for fun, exploration and self-discovery. Eastgate Christian School offers an environment that encourages the love of learning and provides opportunities to explore new ideas.
ECS places a strong emphasis on language skills. For many of our children English is their second language. Our teachers are sensitive to this issue and are skilled at teaching English to all children regardless of their background. We use the A Beka curriculum in all our classrooms to assist in learning language through phonics.
Though each classroom has a different time schedule, all class schedules include the following activities:
Free Center Play
Blocks, Legos, dress-up, home living, reading, listening center, art, writing, manipulatives, puzzles, etc.
Language Arts, math, science, social studies, Bible, art, drama, stories, games, music and finger plays, etc.
Calendar, unit themes, games, guided reading, language development, weather, music, finger plays and stories, etc.
