Curriculum

Luke 2:52 says, "And Jesus increased in wisdom (mental) and stature (physical), and in favor with God (spiritual) and men (social & emotional)." Because we are intentional about discipling our students, we will teach to each of these aspects of a child's development. We know every child is different, and every child learns differently. Our educational philosophy is both age-appropriate and developmentally appropriate and aligns with Arkansas' framework of early learning. We will employ Arkansas' Framework as a guide for providing an experience rich environment where learning takes place within the context of trusting relationships.

Our BLOOMING BAMBINO'S will receive the warm, consistent care that is necessary for children to reach their full potential as curious, confident and able life-long learners. Babies will experience reading, singing, and outdoor time each day.

Our TENACIOUS 2'S will utilize A Beka 2 year old curriculum along with Adventures for Toddlers curriculum. A curriculum based on Arkansas' Framework for Infant and Toddler Care Developmental Strands that specifically addresses each of the Benchmarks. Learning centers, snack time, and recess will  be incorporated throughout the day.  

Our PS3 AND K4 classes will follow A Beka curriculum. A Beka includes daily lessons in:  Bible, Phonics, Numbers, Activity time, and Handwriting (K4).  Learning centers are also an important part of the daily schedule, as well as snack and recess time.

Class Size

Our Blooming Bambino's will have no more than 7 babies and our Tenacious 2's will have no more than 10 toddlers at any given time. K4 classes will have 12 children or less. PS3 classes will have 10 or less.  Our program is designed with a low student to teacher ratio to offer the highest quality of education.
