"The importance of preschool experiences cannot be overemphasized. These experiences are foundations upon which other education is built. The preschool years should be happy and relaxed - a time in which children feel successful.
At The Family Church, we recognize that all children pass through various stages of growth, yet that each child has his/her individual rate and pattern of growth. It is not our intent to attempt to speed up the growth of any child, but rather to provide a stimulating environment in which all children can explore, discover and experience success.
When a child enters the Weekday Preschool, he does not come merely for academic development. Rather, he comes to develop habits and share experiences that will provide a firm foundation upon which he will build the skills necessary for his contributing role in society.
At The Family Church, a child will be provided an environment to learn to interact socially with teachers and other children, to work and play in a group and to grasp the concept of sharing. Children will be given the opportunity for following simple and reasonable directions as well as creative, emotional and artistic expression. The children are taught how to use books, to love and appreciate them, and to realize that pictures and words convey meanings. Opportunities for self-expression through music and singing, show and tell, drawing and painting, conversation and other creative activities are provided to help the children as they discover who they are.
The Weekday Preschool is an outreach program of The Family Church engaging our community with the love and hope of Jesus Christ. The learning environment, which teaches children about themselves and the world around them, is designed to stimulate an awareness of our God and His love for us.
Weekday preschool is really an adventure for any child. It is the beginning of an exciting new phase of life - the school years."
