“Our goal is to lift our children up to Jesus as we REACH, TEACH, and GROW them in HIS light. Early Childhood Education is a start of a beautiful journey in their lives. This growth lasts a lifetime but we have the opportunity in being a part of the “roots” in their path. It is so wonderful to marvel at their growth as they go out in to the world to be lights for Jesus.”

  • Students are encouraged, challenged, and motivated in their learning processes. 
  • Lessons are modified when needed and each activity gives our students a chance to discover and develop at their own pace
  • Our Bible stories and lessons provide the students with a visual, spiritual, auditory, and physical motivation. This helps further their understanding and caters to their learning styles and involvement. 
  • We focus our eyes on Jesus throughout our whole day in class.

  • We also praise Him and thank Him at all times to demonstrate how true and good He is to us.  
  • We model and teach our students to obey our Lord not because we have to, but because we love Him and want Him to fully come into our hearts and minds.
  • Every opportunity is used to apply our loving God to daily activities. From the beginning of the day when we have a worship time, to our prayers before meals or snacks, we put forth the idea that God cares about everything we do.
