Curiosity Corner

(Ages 24-36 Months)

Curiosity Corner is a class offered to toddlers to develop cognitive, language, social, and motor skills. Toddlers 24 to 36 months are divided into age-appropriate classrooms where our “toddler preschool” offers children opportunities to play, learn and explore in a safe Christian environment. Children follow a structured daily routine that emphasizes independence, free-choice, and participation in group activities. Our program runs 8:30–11am two or three days a week.

Full-day Kindergarten

(5 years old by Sept.1)

We are seeking to return Kindergarten to what it truly and developmentally should be. With a firm focus on preparing our students for first grade, our classroom has woven into its daily schedule ample time for the children to spend in classroom centers where true, play-based, practical learning takes place. This is a program for children who are kindergarten eligible or those looking for a "redshirt" year.
