Our school's mission is to create a Christian environment that will enable students to gain independence, self-confidence, social stability, and a greater understanding of advanced mathematics, language, and sensory skills. Both our Toddler and Primary classes are centered around the independence of the child in the environment. The teachers observe the children and demonstrate lessons to them in a curriculum specifically suited to each child's needs and learning style.Our classrooms are made up of the following areas:Practical Life: This area of the classroom encompasses a wide variety of items that better enable the child to gain independence in his/her environment. This could include pouring water, buttoning buttons, or polishing a mirror.Sensorial: These materials were originally designed by Maria Montessori and are conducive to increasing a child's sensory perception skills. These materials include the brown stair, which demonstrates thicker and thinner and the sound cylinders, which children use to gauge softer and louder.Mathematics: Our materials make abstract concepts concrete. By using manipulatives children are able to easily understand number value, addition, multiplication, subtraction, and the decimal system.Language: Our language materials are all phonetics based and are designed to unlock the pleasures of reading with understanding and writing in communication. They begin learning letter's sounds even in the Toddlers class so they can begin reading smoothly and quickly!Cultural and Science: These materials include Geography, Biology, and History. They aid children in understanding the scope of the diversity of their world. Our students have an incredible knowledge of countries and cultures from around the world.Creative Arts: The art and crafts in our classrooms are designed with the child in mind. Each art project is completely equipped with materials for creative output. We value creativity in every individual's development and are always seeking new ways to challenge each child.Our students ages 4 and up also recieve their own folder for academic work they complete throughout the year. The papers they complete range from writing practice, number and letter recognition, addition, multiplication, subtraction, short vowel words, consonant blends, diagraphs, long vowels, and diphthongs. Each child can then take home their own folder at the end of the academic year as a testimony of the progress they've accomplished.
