The teachers use a wide variety of methods including whole group, small group, and individual activities, with opportunities for children to learn to follow a step by step procedure as well as to express their creative ideas. Through stories, song, and all the class room interactions, the teachers emphasize basic Christian values of love, honesty, justice, courage, respect, loyalty and hope.

Special events are held throughout the year, enabling families to have a personal opportunity to interact with our program. The annual Christmas program and festival is a great chance to see a lively version of the first Christmas through story and songs preformed by our children. Followed with a fun festival filled with a variety of games to play, crafts to make and treats to take home. All while making the holiday moment memorable for everyone. 

The Family Night is held each spring and is another opportunity for families to experience what their child does at school. This event is a combination of stories, hands on activities, interactive games and crafts to make, fun snacks to eat and an all around good time for every family member of any age.
