Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to be an integrated approach, helping your child to develop as a life-long learner. We’ve woven the fundamental teachings of the Christian faith with a well-researched curriculum: Big Day for PreK.

The Big Day curriculum is a comprehensive, joyful and playful curriculum that lends itself well to the integration of the joys of life as a child of God. Our custom adaptation of this high-quality curriculum embraces your child’s natural curiosity, encouraging them to explore, play and learn about God and his creation. Your child will encounter Christian teaching not only in daily chapel services, but throughout the day. 

Big Day for PreK

The Big Day for PreK curriculum is designed to incorporate aspects of academic, physical and social-emotional learning into each day. The lessons provide opportunities for teachers and students to engage in meaningful conversations, building vocabulary and oral language. It’s also a ‘literacy-rich’ curriculum: the lessons are filled with big books in circle time, little books for little hands, library books and audiobooks. Each book is designed to enhance and support the lessons of the day and to give your child both shared and independent reading opportunities. 

Small groups give the opportunity for additional practice and one-on-one instruction in phonological awareness, alphabet knowledge, math and science. Small group is also a time when teachers can differentiate the lesson for your child’s needs. 

Guided centers for math, dramatic play, science, writing and reading/listening enrich the classroom environment. Each center gives your child the opportunity to develop skills and explore concepts such as shapes and patterns, communication and problem-solving, observation and prediction, as well as pre-emergent and emergent reading and writing skills. 

Art and music centers encourage creativity and reinforce and enhance all lessons.
