Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe the best way to teach children is by providing them with a Christ-based developmentally-appropriate learning environment. Therefore, all activities will be of Christian character and child-oriented with subtle teacher direction. That is why you will not see many, if any, work sheets at our center.

We will supply lots of developmentally-appropriate learning centers and activities for your child to develop cognitively, physically, spiritually, and emotionally/socially. Your child is offered the opportunity for hands-on learning in special areas such as...
cultural diversity,
sign language, and
Special themes and developmental checklists enable the teachers to prepare lesson plans. This is another way we make sure all areas of your child's development are covered. Weekly lesson plans, calendars, and daily schedules will be posted on the parent bulletin board in each classroom. Tools such as daily forms (younger classes), weekly reports, and monthly calendars are sent home to help keep you informed. Bi-monthly, our center newsletter, Applesauce Times, will be sent home. This is a good source of information for center-wide activities.

A variety of tools are pulled from to provide a well-rounded curriculum. "Wee Learn", "Fun Math", "Hands On Math", and "The Apple Seed" are a few of the wonderful materials used. Saxon Math K and parts of the Abeka curriculum are added to the Pre-K classes to prepare them for Harvest Christian Academy's Kindergarten. HCDC has been very successful at preparing our students for the challenges of private school.
