Curriculum and Special Events
The One in Christ Curriculum is used each day for our Jesus Time which revolves around a different Bible story each week. As part of this curriculum, we also meet weekly in the church for a chapel geared just for preschool children.
Play is still a critical aspect of growth and development because, for children, it is a major avenue for gaining understanding of our world. Through indoor and outdoor free choice play, children learn to work and play well with others.
Snack is provided in the morning and the afternoon as part of your child's tuition for both the Adventurers and the Explorers. During the school year, hot lunch is an option at an additional cost.
Field trips are also included in the cost of tuition. Each class has unique destinations that they travel to each year. We use Berrien Bus to transport our classes to destinations like Stovers, Barbotts, Sarrett Nature Center, the Coast Guard station and many more. We also walk to places like Curious Kids Museum, the carousel and Kilwins.
We have several annual events as well. We have a Harvest Party, Dad’s Night, Mother’s Day Tea, Grandparent’s Day, a Christmas program and an annual end of the year picnic.
