Early Education

Creating freedom to explore in a nurturing, hands-on environment

The early years are the most formative ones – that’s why we believe in creating intentional space to ignite the littlest hearts and minds with a love for learning. With a holistic, age-appropriate curriculum focused on nurturing children in mind, body and spirit, our licensed teachers develop young students in a “real school” setting.

Cognitive Development

Through licensed teachers and interaction that can only occur in a social setting, students practice their language skills, develop math readiness, and are introduced to the scientific method while discovering the world around them.

Physical Development

With access to a fully equipped gymnasium, playground, and classroom learning centers, students will develop their gross and fine motor skills, visual and audio perception skills, spatial awareness, and safe practices in work and play.

Social and Emotional Development

Children experience emotional growth as they learn to respect authority, understand the feelings of others, and develop a healthy concept of self as one uniquely created by God.

Faith Development

 

At the heart of all we do is the mission to educate and energize students to impact their world for Jesus Christ out of love for God and one another.
