WHAT TO EXPECT
6 weeks - Toddlers
In our Early Childhood Development Center, we’re laying the groundwork for a strong academic foundation at every stage:
For our younger children (6- weeks - Toddlers) we love to nurture and help each child reach the developmental milestones, through thematic learning of their environment and God's world around them.
2 year olds
For our 2 year old learners, we begin with our Pathway for Preschool curriculum. Through this Curriculum your child will learn - motor skills, habits, listening, language, number and letter awareness and recognition, scientific investigation, and cultural knowledge in daily studies.
3 year olds
Our three and four-year-olds use the trusted Abeka curriculum and Learning Without Tears. As their preschool learning grows through exposure to phonics, numbers, art, poetry, and the Bible, three-year-olds become students naturally and gain a strong foundation for kindergarten. In our three’s class, learning happens through play, group time, and lots of hands-on discovery. Our three-year-olds have a designated nap time each day.
4 year olds
The Abeka preschool program for K4 serves as a bridge between a preschool experience and kindergarten. For example, your four-year-old will learn to blend the letters so they can begin to read and familiarize themselves with number skills. We love that the curriculum and our teachers create an environment where learning is fun, interactive, and biblically based.
Graduation & Transition
When your child graduates from our Early Childhood program, they will be confident and prepared for kindergarten. Our preschool graduates are well-rounded with a comprehensive academic and biblical foundation and the social skills necessary to interact with peers and adults respectfully. They are reading, writing, and have mastered basic math skills.
As a Lifeway Early Childhood family, you have priority access to our Lifeway Elementary program through a simplified application process, which makes for a seamless transition to elementary school.
