Curriculum

As You Are Preschool curriculum is presented to children in eight learning centers, which are in all classrooms for children from 2 through 5 years old.  Children work cooperatively in small and large groups, independently and teacher directed to reach developmental milestones and school readiness through exploring, experimenting and repetition.

 

Creative Arts teaches your child texture, color, design and small motor control.

 

Library and Language experiences enhance communication, listening skills and self-control.  Literacy and early reading skills start here.

 

Math and Manipulative helps your child learn about numbers, problem solving, order, serializing and coordination.

 

Block Buildingteaches your child about shape, dimension, size, construction, balance and cooperation.

 

Music and Movement helps your child experience creativity, patterns, melody, as well as build large motor skills.

 

Science and Cooking is all about weights, plants, pets, magnets, measurements and the world around us.

 

Dramatic Play is all about the world of pretend, self-identifications, family and community.

 

Sensory Wet and Dry allows children to experience mixture, touch, consistency, measurement, volume and enhances math and science experiences.

 

In addition to these activity areas, children will have Bible Time on a daily basis.  Here children are taught to recognize sin and to celebrate God's grace and forgiveness.  Prayer, worship and singing are among the activities.  Children learn to see Jesus as their Savior and Friend both in the formal teaching of Bible stories and the informal interactions among children and adults.
