Providing sensitive and loving care for children from six weeks through Kindergarten. Children form loving bonds with their caregivers and enjoy age appropriate experiences such as art, music, story time, and outdoor play in the shaded playground complete with mister system. Growing up in this environment, children learn how to cooperate and share with their peers while developing their fine and gross motor skills. Activities at this age promote self esteem, self reliance, and academic functions.
At our cooperative preschool children learn about the world around them through a variety of experiences such as language, art, science, music, books, blocks, role playing, cooking, and field trips. Here, children are comfortable exploring new ideas because they are surrounded by loving teachers and parents. Children in our program can look forward to attending school every day.
Tiny Angels Children’s Choir
Children ages 3-5 are invited to be part of our Tiny Angels Children’s Choir under the direction of Pastor Ann. The children will learn fundamentals of rhythm, singing together, pitch, and possibly even simple instruments. There is no cost to be part of the choir but Pastor Ann does require a commitment to be present in worship at least 5 times during the school year. The first time singing in worship will be October 22. Practice is Tuesdays at 10 am in the Chapel beginning August 29.
