FULL HEART CHILD PROGRAMS
In our infant program, we provide individualized care for each baby. Children are introduced to stories and poems, colors, sensory experiences, outdoor play, and more! Ongoing vocabulary development is supported through teacher narration and sign language. As they grow, infants will practice basic self-care skills such as hand-washing, along with social skills like sharing and taking turns
Our comprehensive, faith-based toddler curriculum includes monthly themes that are relatable to children and linked to what’s happening in the world around them. Expanding upon the infant curriculum, toddlers will enjoy varied sensory experiences, process-based art and craft projects, gross and fine motor activities, STEAM exploration, and more. Children in our toddler program strengthen their social skills as they become more aware and interested in the other children around them, and they benefit from the caring classroom communities we build. Our toddlers follow a semi-structured schedule that includes outdoor play, group naptime, and family style meals!
Our Early Preschool program ensures a smooth transition from toddlers to preschool and is designed for children who are not eligible to enter kindergarten at four years old. Children will take part in a play-based learning curriculum with monthly themes that include teacher and child led activities, independent play, and faith-based learning. They will work on self help skills (i.e. dressing and undressing) as well as potty training. Early Preschool children will have many opportunities to use music, art, and play to build early literacy, math, science and social skills. We will focus on the development of the whole child by encouraging a variety of activities, learning games, and gross motor play. Children will be able to play outside, rest, and have family style meals daily.
Our play-based preschool program consists of a comprehensive, faith-based curriculum with opportunities to explore and learn in many ways! Children have the opportunity to further develop their fine motor skills, early math and literacy concepts, and social skills through open-ended play, process-based art and craft activities, and exploration in the classroom. A developmentally appropriate Circle Time helps to develop large group skills, while children also have ample time to pursue their individual interests and explore in small groups. Outdoor play, rest-time, and social cooperation complete the components of our preschool curriculum.
Our Pre-K program helps ensure readiness for Kindergarten and beyond! Building on their work through play in the Preschool classrooms, Pre-K children will continue to develop their fine and gross motor skills, early math concepts, and pre-reading and pre-writing skills, and positive approaches to learning (including problem solving, creativity, and persistence). Our comprehensive, faith-based curriculum includes developmentally appropriate opportunities (like Circle Time and large group games) for Pre-K children to strengthen their group skills, while we continue to support and build social competence and positive peer relationships as well. Children will receive a portfolio at the end of Pre-K with work samples from the year, showing they are prepared academically, socially, and spiritually for Kindergarten and beyond!
