From the Director:

"Children's Day Out Program Our Children's Day Out Program serves children ages 18 months to 2 years old. Children in this program learn through social skills, Bible lessons, crafts, theme-related units, and music. They attend chapel and music classes weekly. "Pre-School Program Our Pre-School Program provides classes for 3 year olds, 4-5 year olds, and 5 year olds. This program uses thematic units to teach pre-reading skills, reading readiness, number concepts, science, and social studies. Spanish, music, art, and chapel as well as guest speakers and field trips are also included to enrich the children's learning experiences. A structured physical education class is provided, and computers are used to reinforce skills learned in the classroom." -- Excerpted from school literature
