Early Childhood FAQ

How do you keep your building secure?

We keep our buildings on campus locked at all times. Parents each have a code for our electronic box to enter the building.

Do you take NCI payments?

Unfortunately, we cannot accept NCI. If we took NCI, then we could not teach children about Jesus and that is the whole reason we exist.

What curriculum do you use?

We use a combination of A Beka and Highscope. These curriculums have both been around for a long time and are research based. A Beka stressing vocabulary, phonics and pre-math skills, whereas Highscope stresses hands-on learning. Our religious curriculum is Christ light.

When do you combine classrooms?

We combine classrooms in the early morning and late afternoon. Students are combined from 7:00-7:45am and 4:00-6:00pm. Combining students is largely dependent on attendance numbers. We always make sure that the toys are age appropriate.

What extracurriculars do you offer?

We offer Physical education, music and chapel once a week for each class. We also offer soccer by soccer shots.

How do you communicate to parents throughout the day?

We have daily toddler reports that go home at the end of each day. These reports detail the child’s eating, toileting, nap times, as well as any additional information about the child’s day.

Do you play outdoors?

Yes, we have two fenced in playgrounds on the property. One is for toddlers and the other is for older preschoolers. We go outside each day in the cool morning hours and again in the afternoon depending on the weather.

Are you state licensed?

Yes, we have been state licensed since we opened over 20 years ago.

What do children do at naptime if they don’t sleep?

Children are asked to lay still and try each day. After they have tried and most children are sleeping, they are able to read books on their cot.

I have never brought my child to preschool. What should I expect?

Each child is different in their transition from home to school, however, most children take around 2 weeks to completely relax and be themselves. Each of our teachers are loving and ready to help your child adjust quickly. Once the child feels safe and gets used to the routine, then they become comfortable.

What is the enrollment process?

The director will meet with the family, introduce them to staff, give a tour of the facility, and discuss possible enrollment.

Do you have special events throughout the year?
