Loving God, Loving Others, Loving Life, IN CHRIST
The Center provides programs for preschoolers aged six weeks until they enter kindergarten. The classrooms are designed to invite your child's attention and are set up to provide your child with an environment where learning is obtained in a positive way.
In the Infant-Toddler rooms, children are cared for in a way that learning is constantly happening between feeding, diapering and naptime. The Staff are always providing opportunities for learning through play.
The Two Year, Three Year, and Four Year classes are organized into learning centers that are equipped with a variety of materials that provide activities for the children to develop emotionally, mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually. The Three and Four Year old classes follow Anderson School District 5 standards.
The day's schedule includes a balance of vigorous and quiet play, indoor and outdoor activities and small group and individual experiences. Teachers are flexible and sensitive to the children's ages and needs in planning activities.
