Our school year starts in September and runs until the middle of June with a break at Christmas and in March. Our classes are two and a half hours in length and include a wide variety of learning activities, all of which are based on Christian principles.




What will your child learn?

Our thematic curriculum offers our students a wide variety of topics, taught through
circle time, crafts, physical activity, and story time. Other learning activities incorporate art, music, physical movement, language, science and special activities.


Some of our weekly themes include Colors, Shapes, Numbers, Weather, and Music,

as well as seasonal themes such as Apples, Pumpkins, Mittens, Penguins, Sunflowers,

and many more to help prepare your child for their first years of school.


Our program is designed to promote skills in learning, social interaction,
