Curriculum Statement

Our curriculum is developed to foster the growth of the whole child–spiritually, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. We want to help the children develop…
…a sense of security in being a child of God, their knowledge of Jesus’ love for them, and respect for God’s creation.
…an ability to share, communicate effectively with peers and teachers, and to listen and cooperate with others to achieve a common goal.
…their large muscles and coordination through vigorous movement in outdoor and indoor activities.
…small motor skills and coordination in quiet, controlled, precise activities.
…positive self-esteem, enthusiasm for learning, and a sense of belonging.
…self-control, respect and caring, both for others and themselves.
…cognitive abilities through exploration, experimentation, reasoning, problem-solving, and rich language experiences.
…pre-reading skills and a love and appreciation for reading.
