Our Curriculum

Orange (biblical)

Combines child development with theology. It teaches children that God made them, He loves them, and He will be their friend forever. It has themed weekly activities that cover bible stories, memorizing bible verses, and learning songs. 

Heggerty (Literary)

Introduces children to phonics and literacy. Heggerty works on rhyming, letters and vowel sounds, blending letters and vowels together, introduction to syllables, and introduction to sight words. 

Eureka Math

Introduces students to numbers, shapes, counting, and currency denominations. Math is done through hands-on learning and daily lesson reviews. 

Second step (social emotional)

Teaches students listening skills, attentiveness, behavior management, and social skills. This curriculum also teaches children age-appropriate safety rules in both public and private settings. 

“My goal as the childcare manager is to create a loving, nurturing, safe environment for children and their families. To provide the best care and service for our families. Build relationships with children, staff and families. And to make a difference in each child's life.”
