And Jesus grew in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with God and man . . . Early education classes at Liberty Christian School provide a Christ-centered community where young children are nurtured to grow just like Jesus did - academically, physically, spiritually, and socially. We desire a long-term partnership with parents to carry out our greatest mission - to equip children to serve Christ. At Liberty Christian School our greatest asset is our dedicated faculty and staff. Every adult who serves in our preschool and pre-kindergarten program is a born-again Christian who loves Jesus and loves children. Our teachers are certified and are following closely the call of Christ on their lives.

Other subjects taught Little Lions Learning Center curriculum and activities are designed to help each child in several different areas of development. We seek to help children develop cognitive skills, language skills, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and social skills. In addition to these skills it is our deepest desire to provide for spiritual development through our Bible curriculum and biblical integration in all facets of our program. Below you will find a brief overview of how our program works to give your child the best opportunities for development in all areas. Spiritual Growth: Every morning begins with our Bible lessons. We use ACSI Bible Series. Each week the children will learn a different Bible story, all with emphasis on God's love. The lesson also includes a modern day story that applies the biblical truths we learn to circumstances that the children are familiar with in their daily lives. In addition, the children will memorize a verse from scripture that goes with our lesson. The spiritual development goes beyond a daily lesson. Language Development: In an effort to prepare students for Kindergarten, we have chosen Open Court Reading as our language curriculum. Open Court Reading is made up of eight units each lasting four weeks. The daily lessons are broken into three sections (Sounds & Letters, Reading & Responding, and Integrating the Curriculum). Stories, finger plays, letter sound cards, games, and workshop activities are included to teach the many concepts in the curriculum. The children will also begin to practice reading through the use of pre-decodable books. These books use high frequency words and pictures to help the children begin to read on their own. Cognitive Development: The daily lessons in Open Court Reading include workshops which not only compliment the theme but provide for cognitive development. We supplement the workshops with some worksheets, games and experiments which further stretch the thinking skills of the children. Some of the skills emphasized are identifying shapes, identifying numbers (0-20), one-to-one counting to 10, recognizing colors, completing puzzles, repeating simple patterns, estimating & comparing, and sorting & categorizing. Fine Motor & Gross Motor Development: Children have numerous opportunities each day to develop and strengthen their small and large muscles. Both the Bible and the language curriculum incorporate activities that help develop fine motor skills; for example: cutting, gluing, coloring, painting, and play-doh. We also introduce letter and number tracing as we go throughout the year to complement the curriculum. Children are given opportunities to develop large muscles through movement songs and games. They also have two thirty minute recess periods (all day students). Those students that attend full day Pre-K also go to P.E. class once a week with the elementary P.E. instructor. Social-Emotional Development: Children receive support and encouragement as they begin the journey of school at Liberty. Children have opportunities through free play time, small group activities, dramatic plays, and classroom discussions to practice their social skills. We guide children in interactions using Biblical examples and principles. Our curriculum helps the children learn to identify their feelings. We support the children as we teach them to handle their emotions in Christ-like ways. Our discipline system uses positive reinforcement such as stickers, treasure box, stamps, blessing beans, and words of affirmation. We also help children develop an understanding of the consequences of their actions. Children are encouraged to use good manners and to treat others as they would like to be treated.

From the Director:

Children who attend Little Lions Learning Center receive weekly instruction from our elementary teachers in physical education, music, and library. As well, children attend the weekly chapel service with students in kindergarten - grade six.
