Classes are offered one to five days a week. Class Ratios Research has proven the importance of low child to staff ratios in a group care setting. It is our desire to provide the highest level of care to your precious children, therefore, we are proud to offer some of the lowest child to staff ratios in Gaston County. We stay well under the state requirements.
Children learn best through their everyday experiences with the people they love and trust, and when learning is fun.
We are a "learn through play" preschool with a theme based curriculum. Preschool is all about learning through play. Doing puzzles, recognizing shapes, and scribbling are all important steps on the ladder to reading and elementary school success. We don't expect a baby to walk before he/she learns to sit up, and then crawl. So we shouldn't push children to read before their eyes, ears, fine motor skills, and minds are ready.
The main goal of our curriculum is to prepare your child for kindergarten. Our curriculum will focus on independent and social skills while working together as a group. We will introduce colors, shapes, the alphabet, Bible verses, prayer, numbers and name recognition all in age appropriate and developmentally appropriate activities.
