Class Descriptions

Each class follows an age-appropriate Bible curriculum. We believe that very young children can learn the principles of the gospel when taught at their level. Monthly themes and enrichment activities are also included. Our daily program includes: Bible stories and related crafts, playtime (in and outside), music and rhymes, quiet table activities, lunch and rest time.

Toddlers (9 months - 14 months)

Our large, bright room is filled with developmentally appropriate toys, climbing equipment, books and a playhouse. The children enjoy music, a simple Bible story, crafts, and lots of opportunities to learn through play. The student/teacher ratio in the classroom is 4:1.

Young 1's (15 months - 18 months)

This class is an extension of the Toddler Class. We begin the class with a Bible story and accompany the lesson with a simple craft that reinforces the lesson. The children enjoy lots of playtime with age appropriate toys and music.

Old 1's (19 months - 23 months)

This busy class is filled with many learning opportunities in addition to playing. The children sit at a low table for crafts, lunch and table activities. Nap time is on mats. Bible story, crafts, music and lots of TLC make the day a fun experience. The student/teacher ratio in this classroom is 5:1.

2 Year Olds

The 2's classes begin to learn more about God, His creation, and heroes throughout the Bible. The crafts reflect the older toddler's increased fine motor skills. Group participation and interaction are stressed in the story time, music, and playtime. The children enjoy a Thanksgiving Feast, holiday parties and birthday celebrations. The student/teacher ratio in these classes are 6:1.

3 Year Olds

The curriculum for the 3 year old students centers around their eagerness to learn and their increased ability to listen and follow directions. The character of God is the theme of one Bible unit. Words like "omniscient" and "eternal" are examples of words we teach during this time in their development. Each is related to a familiar Bible story. Crafts become more detailed as the student's fine motor skills develop. The teachers begin to encourage responsibility with assigned helper jobs. Monthly themes are planned with fun dress-up days, rodeo day, snow day, and a splash day to end the school year. The student/teacher ratio in these classes are 7:1. Children must be potty trained to enter the class in September.

4 Year Olds

The 4's class is a wonderful alternative to preschool. The Bible curriculum expands on the character of God, a Biblical timeline, prayer, and a special focus on Christmas and Easter. Memory verses and songs reinforce the valuable Biblical principles. Monthly themes such as Fall, Thanksgiving, Winter, rodeo and critters provide enrichment activities for the students. Cooking, science experiments and other hands-on activities add unique experiences weekly. A letter of alphabet is highlighted each week, as well. Children bring alphabet "show n'tell" items. Letter recognition games, activities, color sheets and ABC songs are ways we introduce pre-reading skills. Responsibility in the classroom is taught by assigned jobs, individual centers and activities that require group participation. The student/teacher ratio in these classrooms is 7:1.
