We use children's natural curiosity to develop their love for learning. We create a safe atmosphere for learning where students feel love, nurture and acceptance. Utilizing a blend of Montessori and traditional methods individual exploration is encouraged while preparation for success in future traditional education is accomplished. We present our curriculum with the perspective that God is the creator of all. We value diversity and welcome families of all ethnic, cultural, religious and socio-economic backgrounds.
We provided an opportunity for students to explore, learn and discover not only their world but interpersonal relationships as well. Our curriculum includes math, field trips, arts & crafts, zoology & botany, practical life skills, sensorial lessons, literature & language, communication skills, beginning sign language, small and large motor skills, and music, finger plays, songs and rhyme.
We use the Promiseland bus to go on field trips throught the year which allows us to introduce children to new experiences.
Our schedule is different for each class. For example, our preschool with start their day off with putting on their slippers and washing their hands before they enter the classroom. If they come a few minutes early, they will hear soft music in the background and are able to relax with a book or a work on the shelf. When it is time for school to start, the preschool children will start off with a prayer in morning circle. During this time they will talk about the calendar, sing welcome songs, talk about their day, be introduced to a new letter or number and be shown how to do a "New Work." After circle they are dismissed to choose which work they are going to do and the teacher will give lessons to a group of 2 or 3 on the materials that the children are interested in. They can also have snack during this time. As the work time comes to a close, the children will clean-up, review the day, and then go to Bible time. This is about a 5-10 minutes. Then the children are excused to go to their classroom and meet in circle and then excused for recess. Then it is time to go home.
