Serves children beginning at eight weeks old. The teachers strive to meet each child’s individual needs. The babies receive lots of snuggle time and attention! The student to teacher ratio is 4:1.
Toddler Class
Incorporates more structure. There is a daily classroom routine of play, outside time, songs, art, stories and lunch. In addition to turning one by August 31st, children in this class must be off the bottle and not require a morning nap. The student to teacher ratio is 5:1.
Two Year Old Class
Continues to focus on the whole child with a daily routine. Increasing independence, more communication with teachers and peers and potty training are important skills at this age level. The student to teacher ratio is 8:1.
Three Year Old Class
Children need to be potty trained before attending. Children at this age are big talkers and have a longer attention span, therefore activities can be more complex! The student to teacher ratio is 9:1.
Four Year Old Class
Continues to be play-based but also incorporates crucial academic skills through the Zoo Phonics and Creative curricula. Our children also participate in a comprehensive fine motor skills program called Move N’ Write. The children in our program are prepared to move on to Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten. The student to teacher ratio is 12:1.
Transitional Kindergarten
Is for children who have completed the four year old program and miss the cut-off date for Kindergarten or for children who might need an extra year before beginning elementary school. It expands and extends from the four year old curricula to challenge children in all areas of development. The student to teacher ratio from 9:00am to 1:00pm is 12:1.
Extended Care
We will offer extended care from 8:00am-9:00am and 1:00pm – 3:00pm for all ages. Pricing options for five days are listed with our tuition rates. If you would like to schedule regular care for one to five days a week, please check in the Office for alternate pricing and availability. We will also offer drop-in care on a first-come, first-serve basis for $10.25 an hour. During extended care, the children will have quiet time on their mats. Children may go to sleep, read, or play with quiet toys.


We strive to support every child’s social, emotional, mental, physical and spiritual development. We believe children learn through play, so we provide a variety of stimulating options for exploring and learning throughout the day.

Once our children enter the toddler classroom, they choose the centers where they would like to play, including art, sand/water play, science, fine motor manipulatives, dramatic play, library and blocks.

Our teachers interact with the children directly through books, Bible stories, songs, rhymes and sharing time. All of our classes spend time outside (weather permitting) or in the gym each day to engage in play that encourages large motor skill development.

At the age of four, we introduce formal curricula to our children in addition to play. The speed with which the teachers cover material and the depth of content varies by class. All the Preschool and Full Care children who are four and five years old receive a combination of instruction through the following curricula:

  • Creative Curriculum (provides units of study covering all areas, including literature, music, math, science, art, history, etc.)
  • Zoo Phonics (literacy program for pre-reading and reading skills)

Enrichment Opportunities

  • Included in Tuition - Toddler through TK classes receive music and creative movement/PE sessions each week. Our three through five year old students will also attend chapel on Wednesdays.
  • Optional - Specific information about enrolling in these opportunities is distributed at the beginning of the school year. These outside groups set their own prices for their services and collect payment directly. Currently, we have a partnership with Matthews Ballet where they offer classes each Friday for children age 2 ½ and older.
