The Brentwood Christian School's "Children's Ark" program is an extension of the Christian education program for children at the Brentwood Oaks Church of Christ. Children's Ark is neither a babysitting service nor an academic school. The program's purpose is to provide a loving Christian atmosphere where children may grow and Children's Ark develop through a variety of enrichment and readiness experiences. The preschool curriculum is designed to provide children with all the necessary skills needed for kindergarten.
Children learn through life experiences. The Children's Ark program's charge is to offer children experiences that will help them grow in their knowledge of God, themselves, and their world.
The goals of the Children's Ark program are:
* To teach children about God and His love for them
* To provide an atmosphere characterized by love, warmth, and caring
* To encourage a positive self-image in children
* To teach children to be responsible for their behavior
* To develop group skills - cooperation, communication, and sharing
