Curriculum

From infants to toddlers, preschoolers to pre-kindergarteners, highly trained teachers lead each child to reach developmental milestones, preparing the children for social and academic success.
 
 

Our Discoverers Program provides infants with a rich, nurturing environment in which to grow and develop. Children are surrounded by a wealth of sensory experiences and loving care to stimulate brain development, trust and mobility.

Our Explorers are on the go. This program provides a place where toddlers can practice mobility and learn about playing with friends. The curriculum includes faith development and exposure to colors, shapes, counting and literature. Language development is encouraged through books, songs, rhymes, and experiences. Potty training begins with older children in this age group, as well.

Voyagers are encouraged to manage their emotions and use verbal skills to describe their feelings while learning preschool skills using the Conscious Discipline approach.  Children are taught to group, sort and classify objects familiar to them. They are also given valuable time to engage in social relationships with a focus on character development.  Children work together to create and collaborate in the Innovation Station. Faith and virtuous living are nurtured through the use of “One in Christ,” a religion curriculum designed to help children develop a relationship with God and His Word through hands-on learning opportunities.

Our Innovators are planners and problem-solvers. Every aspect of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) is integrated at the PK-4  level. The curriculum includes the development of basic school skills, reading readiness, play and social/emotional growth. Additionally, children spend time in the Innovation Station, where interest and imagination motivate    the development of creative thinking, collaboration, and artistic expression. Faith in God is nurtured through His Word and hands-on service.

We offer a blended program that can serve as a student’s kindergarten year or a bonus kindergarten year for those students who are showing signs of readiness but may benefit from a gift of time before officially beginning kindergarten and the school-age years. 

The KinderCAN program offers a C-curriculum that is mindful of the Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills, integrates a focus on STEAM, and strives to help children develop a strong Christian faith.  The program is tailored to the A-ability development of the individual child giving them the opportunity to be challenged and achieve at a pace that is right for them.  Learning and growth is optimized in a N-nurturing environment where students are encouraged to develop a strong character and a lifelong love for learning.  Parent/teacher conferences are held throughout the year to enhance and maximize school readiness and milestone development as students prepare for first grade and beyond. 

Innovation Station

The Innovation Station is a thinking lab where children can explore, create, build, brainstorm, collaborate, experience dramatic play and music, and study. This area is filled with a menagerie of materials that encourage children to engage in whatever interests them while expanding their God-given talents.
