Class Ratios - Research has shown 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 wellunder the state requirements 

Curriculum - children learn best througth their everyday experinces 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 before he/she learns to sit up, and then crawl. so, we shouldn't push children to read before thier eyes, ears, fine motor schills, 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 whle working together as a group. We will introduce colors, shapes, the alphabet, Bible verses,prayer, numbers, and name recognition all inage appropriate and developmentally appropriate activities. 

Daily Activities Include - Table Manipulates Play, Center/Social Time, Calendar Time, Skills Developmet, Snack, Recess (playground/gym), and Jesus Time.

In Addition to the Classroom Curriculum, yout child will grouw through - Chapel every Thursday, Weekly Music and Movement Classes, and various cooking opportunities.
