Children will be following a Bible-based, educational curriculum that focuses on learning through play and educational activities that teach the skills necessary for Kindergarten. Our academic curriculum is tailored to assist in preparing your child for kindergarten readiness.

Children will be exploring the wonder of art and engaging in the creative process each week.
